    Thank you

    Sure... Here is what I've been able to find on the net (may have changed now, this consist was from a couple of years ago):

    -GE P4O/P42 (Portland-Spokane-St.Paul-Chicago)
    -GE P40/P42 (Seattle-Spokane-St.Paul-Chicago) - 'elephant style' with first unit
    -GE P40/P42 (Seattle-Spokane-St.Paul-Chicago) - back-to-back with second unit
    -Budd '1700-series' mail/baggage car (Seattle-Spokane-St.Paul-Chicago) - to my knowledge no-one has made one of these yet

    I believe that consist has changed. Just a few days ago, the CBS Evening News had a report about the closing down of Amtrak. They had some interviews of people who live in the Cutbank, Montana area. They concluded the report with an Amtrak train leaving Cutbank. I remember seeing several baggage and material handling cars and the usual complement of Superliners.
