If you mean the older, "boxy-er" Amtrak long-haul diesels, those are EMD F40PH's -essentially a GP40 with an HEP generator in what EMD called a "cowl unit". The first cowl units were ATSF FP45's...

As apparently the only Bachmann EZ-track user here, I will say it has one basic virtue - it is ~95% compatible with Atlas Code 80 N scale track. That can be handy if you want to use something like...
