Item DescriptionThe General Electric P42 locomotive is also known as the "Genesis" locomotive and is a modern 4200 horsepower passenger locomotive used across the United States and Canada. 2011 marks the 40th anniversary of Amtrak – to commemorate this historic birthday, Amtrak has painted a number of its locomotives into a series of anniversary schemes, each taking design cues from a different paint and logo era from the railroad's history. P42 locomotive #156 is painted in a phase I heritage scheme, much like the original paint scheme worn by Amtrak E-units and carries the numbers 1971 and 2011 on its side. These heritage locomotives have been seen in attendance at National Train Day celebrations as well as other train related festivities all across the country and serve as a reminder of Amtrak's long history as America's railroad.
