CAPTION: INAUGURAL runs for VIPs were staged on November 30 with the first of three Talgo Pendular sets for Amtrak Cascades services from Seattle to Portland and Vancouver after trials at up to 200 km/h at the Transportation Test Centre in Pueblo, Colorado. The end cars have tall fins acting as a styling link between the low-profile Talgo cars and the EMD-built F59PHI locomotives. Commercial service was due to start on December 1, but had to be postponed because of late delivery of seats
