    I remember thinking to myself "I wish our GTW commuter trains were as cool as the Amtrak E units". Now, of course, we have no GTW commuter trains to complain about. And the snapshots I took of them on Dad's Brownie are in the middle of some anonymous landfill...because they weren't cool enough.
