SPV Coach

Our 2019 Coach class also serves as the debut event for the recently-returned-to-service SPV coaches! These Budd-built Self-propelled vehicle, or SPV, were originally constructed with cabs and traction motors. They’ve since been converted to high-density coaches, and were used extensively in the northeast until their retirement. They’ve since been sold into private ownership and renovated, and the Autumn Colors Express will serve as their coming out, into Amtrak-certified service.
