A special Amtrak train visited the capital city Saturday.

The Amtrak train is powered by a specially painted locomotive celebrating Veterans and showcases the past, present and future of
America's Railroad.

The exhibit train features memorabilia from the beginning of Amtrack in 1971 to today's modern sleeping cars and high speed rail service. The locomotive is painted red, white and blue with 50 stars and a special America's Railroad Salutes our Veterans logo.

To show how committed they are, Amtrak plans to have 25% of new hires to be veterans by 2015.
