In January 2015, the intended names of the new Viewliner-II sleepers and diners were added to this page, which originally contained the names first assigned to Amtrak's 50 production Viewliner sleepers. As part of the rollout of names for the Viewliner-IIs, the Viewliner-Is received new names; those are also now included.
In 2006, exterior names were being removed from the Viewliner-I sleepers as they came out of Beech Grove overhauls, though for a time, random cars had their name replaced. As of 12/31/08 names had been removed from those cars, too, and the former name board on the side of the car just read "Viewliner 620##." In addition, the striping was modified to place the red-white stripes along the top of the window area instead of above the fluting between the two rows of windows. In late 2015 Amtrak began adding the new "River" series names to the Viewliner-Is, with Croton River (62014) possibly being the first such modification. One of the prototype sleepers, 2301, was refurbished in 2001, and ran as 62091 (named Eastern View) until being stored dead in March 2003. In 2014 the 62091 (nee-2301) reemerged from Beech Grove as a theater car, and named American View. Viewliners 2300 (the other prototype sleeper) and 8400 (the prototype diner) were moved to the Wilmington Maintenance facility in October 2004, to be used for shells as new concepts for interiors were developed. 2300 was moved to Beech Grove in 2014 for possible use in evaluating a next generation coach configuration, but is not carried on the active roster. 8400 was restored to service as a diner through funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
