Over the Horizon

Introduced by Amtrak in April 1989, the Horizon fleet (also known as the Amfleet IIIs) were based on the Pullman-Standard Comet-series commuter cars built since 1970. The new Horizon fleet consisted predominantly of two basic car types - Coach and Dinette - with 86 and 18 cars respectively forming the 104-car order placed with Bombardier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An Amtrak Classic

Over the years, the Horizon cars have remained largely unchanged from their as-built appearance, with the only predominant visual differences being the evolution of the Amtrak paint schemes from Phase III through Phase IVb. However, two key changes that have occurred include the replacement of the original power sliding doors with manually-operated parlor doors, and the replacement of the fold-down stairs with fixed steps.

 

 

 


Here are a couple of early renders of the Horizons done by our very own John Sheridan. As the model progresses through the design stage, some parts will need to be beefed up a bit to meet our minimum tolerances. The tooling will begin in July.
