(?) Metra Electric seating

Recommended Posts

I am making a highliner V1 in a game, but I have no idea what the seating arrangment is, due to them retiring 5+ years ago. It has been ages, can someone please send me a link or photo to a seating chart?

I found this page via a Google Image search. There's some interior shots, as well as a seating layout plan from when the cars were first bought by Illinois Central. You'll have to do some more looking around if you want an updated seat plan though, as the interior pictures show some seats facing each other, but the original layout doesn't.

The reason for the facing seats is that it was required to have it where emergency windows are in order to facilitate

added room in case of emergency, since these seats didn't flip. These cars are retired, so it doesn't make a difference

any more.

I this was part of an abandoned consist out somewhere in California.   I think this was covered in another thread.  I think someone bought these cars and attempted to start a service.   I don't remember the details.

The uploader commented in the YouTube video that this is in North Judson, Indiana at the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum. This can be confirmed toward the end of the video when they go into the adjacent car with the model railroad layout in the middle.

The discussion about the "abandoned" cars in California is here.
