Amtrak's Heritage Baggage Car Roster Photos
GENERAL: Amtrak's baggage & mail handling cars used systemwide on nearly all Long-Distance trains.
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND: These cars were given to Amtrak at its start back in 1971 and came from several railroads. In the mid-1990's, Amtrak began a program to convert older Heritage Coaches into Baggage Cars by covering over the windows, gutting the car interior and placing a center sliding door on the car.
NOTES: You will find one of these cars on most Long-Distance trains. Some were specifically set up to just handle mail only however the cars originally used only for mail are now used as normal baggage cars. 2015 Note: New Viewliner II Baggage Cars will be indexed here temporarily. A separate index page will be created for them at a later date, they are numbered in the 61000-series.
