Saw my first MN Comet V coach a couple weeks ago at Campbell Hall... that was a shock! I saw one in transit while photographing at Secaucus Junction a month or two back... didnt notice till I got my slides back, but the Comet V body and the M-7 body seem very similar... looks like in a few years, we're going to have a very sterile-looking, blue-bandless railroad!

With clearances as they are in North East there are only a few options. to get more seat room you got to bulge the sides resulting in Cosmopolitan design aka M series and Comet V's or you would loose space as in Comet 1 tru 4
