Remarks & Notes 
A futuristic train in a not-so-futuristic setting
In 1992-93, Amtrak tested the Swedish-built X2000. The train was built by Kalmar Verkstad, and leased to Amtrak, who tested the train and then used it in revenue service for a few months in early 1993. From May to July 1993, the train was taken on a national tour and displayed around the Amtrak system. Here, the high-speed train negotiates the Soo Line (former Milwaukee Road) trackage past Cut Off Tower in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on June 26, 1993. The train will clear the interlocking and then back to Milwaukee’s downtown Amtrak station. It was a very wet year (remember the flooding?) and this with the combination of leaking grain cars makes Cut Off look a bit more green than usual!
