hope to see new amtrack locos in service soon
Looks good to me!
Yes sure does look nice.
I for one think the F125s look better, but hey, the chargers are built here in Sac and I know one of the Siemens VPs that made the happen. So I'm glad to see them do well.
it will be nice to f125s as well
amtrack new power testing in area hope they enter regular service soon
I helped deliver a pair of these back in November!
Eastbound California Zephyr
An old Grade School friend of mine who works the Chicago shops for Amtrak just took delivery of one last week.
Well, I would not exactly rate these as being handsome beasts. But they will be interesting for many railfans.
I don't understand why they aren't in phase V like the p42s. That is one of the worst paint schemes I have seen in a while, and with the Viewliner baggage cars in IIIb as well, the Amtrak fleet is starting to look a little mismatched. Almost like a reverse Rainbow era...
An interesting observation. After taking another look, I cannot disagree.
I have spotted several units on galsburg web cam as well as on state trains through potiac as a second unit p40 on front sounded like it was in idle they will be leading soon on regular trains I have noticed Oregon and California units are painted different
a friend told me amtrack run them a certain amount of miled for breakin
unfortunately one had a battery fire breaking in on a Hiawatha train this morning it was second unit in consist
