Finally, I have made one of my favourite American(and iconic) trains (Electric multiple units) one of the last streamliners. Attempted to make a high-speed train sadly in struggling and deteriorating infrastructure
At the end of their life as EMU are still in use but only as passenger coaches 

Budd Metroliner

Example of usage one of the engines that were used with them was GG1

Wow! These look great! I love the side windows - you nailed the shape.

Why are the ends/stripes black, out of curiosity? I always loved Metroliners - they felt so British.

Origin colour pallet and design is hard to make for me (in a proper way) and chose to use as fewer colours as possible but maybe try to make some paint jobs

Love what you've done with the Metroliner, but the bloody nose GG-1 is the icing on the cake!

Very nice @Darkkostas25!

It’s an interesting prototype and not one I’d known about before.  I love the modularity - and undoubtedly your PRR GG1 looks brilliant with it as usual!

Best,

Excellent work on recreating the Metroliner series. I like how you put the windows sideways or upside down (cab end) to make the carriages look proper.

Love the use of the wedge bricks on the ends to get that shaping! Also enjoying the use of the trapezoidal flag parts on the trucks. Very cool build!

Really, really well designed and truly iconic!!!

I love the way you used the 2x3 train windows in horizontal position!!! Great idea and I'd say really faithful to the prototype! :pir-love:

Ciao!
