I just did a short blog post at Bubblews about Amtrak "Heritage Unit" 156, complete with two photos I took of this classy unit:

That was one of the units we had for Train Festival 2011 I the Quad cities.
Got a few miles in the cab.

I think we figured it would be removed right away on one of the heritage units.
That, and it was not an FO261 excursion.
