On May 1, 1971, the newly created Amtrak assumed control of almost all intercity rail operations in the United States. Amtrak was tasked with reversing decades of decline in America's passenger rail infrastructure, and so a sleek and modern brand identity was created to attract passengers back to the rails. Amtrak 4316 was the first locomotive outshopped in an Amtrak livery, and was the only one to ever wear this special application. Ultimately, a base of red, white, and blue would compose the palette of the various liveries that all stock wore between 1971 and 2000. Amtrak 4316 would go on to be repainted to the standard Phase I livery by the end of 1971, and would continue in service until the late 1970s when it was displaced by SDP40Fs and later F40s.
