AMTK 606 Sharing the Magic Approaching Kingston Station

AMTK 606, the ACS-64 that has been converted to a rolling Coca-Cola billboard, invites onlooker to 'Share the Magic on Amtrak' as it leads train 160 into Kingston Station for its stop just a few minutes behind its scheduled arrival time.
<BR><BR>I have mixed emotions. How many other corporations will buy space on the sides of ACS-64's? Any will add interesting variety to the numbing similarity of most Northeast Corridor trains; is that worth turning the fleet info larger versions of city buses in bus-wraps? Still I am thankful to the railfan in Edison, NJ who let us all know that the 606 was handling train 160 today; this was my first in-person view.

Hahahahaha!!!! Do you suppose Amtrak management could deem to toss Joe- can- of-Paint a hundred bucks and ask him/her to paint a Reuben sandwich on the side of a plain vanilla Diesel engine of theirs and run it between South Station and Chicago?? Something easy crafted by an onboard 👨‍🍳 chef???
This is simply crass commercialism and has gone so very far from what a quasi government entity was set up as and meant to the American public in 1971. No wonder that rural America has abandoned it in droves
