Does anyone know the official name ? Is it 3 sheets,wave, or splash or none of the above? Thanks, Jim

I'm not sure if there's a very official name, but Amtrak's site says "Catch the next wave in train travel," so maybe it is wave!

I remember hearing that the actual name given to it by Amtrak is "Three Tracks Merging".

I'd always heard it was the "Flying breast implant" ;-)

Give me a pointless arrow anyday..... The new logo is the dumbest and most poorly executed, logo change ever.

It is suppose to be two rails going off into the distance. I still prefer the famous pointless arrow.

I thought it stood for Amtrak 3 Business Divisions at the time. NEC, Intercity, Mail & Express

Personally, I think it means that only three trains in the entire system run on time on any given month !!!!!!!!

Although I like Phase IV better than Phase III, I'll also take the Pointless Arrow any day over this so-called, "Three Sheets in the Wind."

I think a neat logo would have been a smashed piggy bank with only a quarter left in it.
