I would pull the trigger on this guy in a blink of the eye.

NEWARK, Del. – Amtrak has debuted a new look for Siemens ACS-64 No. 606: the colors of Coca-Cola. The locomotive has pulled the northbound Silver Meteor, train No. 98, up the Northeast Corridor on Thursday morning.

The locomotive marks a new partnership with Coca-Cola, signalling the end of a long-running agreement for Pepsi to supply Amtrak's trains. Amtrak noted the change on its Facebook page Wednesday, but as of Thursday morning has not issued a press release with additional information

With the Siemens ACS-64 being the newest Amtrak locomotive I believe both Lionel and MTH will eventually invest in the tooling to manufacture the locomotive.

Since it is an electric it will be only used in the NE, I wonder what Amtrak's future locomotive plans are for the long haul routes that are not electrified.
