Amtrak Horizon Cars - Prototype Background
Arguably, one of the most successful passenger car designs used in North America, the Amtrak Horizon Fleet has proven to be extremely versatile and can be found in service anywhere in the US.

Built by Bombardier in 1988-90, the 104 cars in the fleet are based upon the Comet II commuter car which had been available since 1980. Modified to be more suitable for long distance service, the Horizon cars feature reclining seating, standard accordian diaphragms between cars and the superior riding General Steel Industries (GSI) Superliner II trucks.

Offered for the first time in O gauge, these full-scale length cars will look great behind the Atlas O AEM-7 or any modern Amtrak diesel locomotive.
