Is anyone else seeing gibberish in the National Train Day PDF?

Posted by Amanda on Mon May 7 09:56:08 2012

Brochure here.

Starting on page five, a lot of the headlines/subheads look like complete gibberish to me. On the right side of that page, I see:

&"F: 3@@;H7DE3DK
EXHIBITION TRAIN

(Which I only assume means "40th Anniversary.")

So that's what happens when I view in Chrome. When I open in Adobe Reader, all that is gibberish has disappeared entirely, with no text or photos to be seen.

Is it just me?

Working fine for me on IE 9 in Windows 7 Ultimate.

Chrome uses its own PDF interpreter, which sometimes gets confused.

When I open in Adobe Reader, all that is gibberish has disappeared entirely, with no text or photos to be seen.

That's what I see on Firefox 12. It opens with "Insufficient data for an image" and "A drawing error has occurred," followed by gaps on page 5.

It opens and displays almost fine in Preview (default PDF viewer on Mac OS X). The only problem is a corrupted picture of the interior of the Acela Express Café car.

I use Firefox and have Adobe Reader 12 and the brochure is correct through all pages.

Any signs of corruption on the Acela Express Café Car photo?

I'm using Adobe reader, IE8 and Windows Vista. The pdf looks fine with the exception of the Acela Express picture (top part of the pic is good while the rest of it has a pinkish hue) and the Acela Express Cafe Car pic (this pic is corrupted).

Something's not quite right with the cover.
