The Siemens ACS-64, or Amtrak Cities Sprinter, is an electric locomotive designed by Siemens Mobility for use on the Northeast Corridor (NEC) and the Keystone Corridor in the northeastern United States. The design was based on locomotives Siemens created for use in Europe and Asia, but with changes to comply with American standards.

I have one. It kinda makes a hum sound. I haven't run it much cause I was reworking my layout. I would like to get the Charger when it comes out. Athearn also announced a bunch of Amtrak engines, maybe some cars ...(?)


But I'm not sure I'm that into it though.

I might got for sd80mac if it appears first.

The Eurosprinter and the Vectron:

Yeah you get to union station and they spend quite some time switching over to the charger which is a diesel. As the rest of the tracks are leased from csx, maybe more the further you go.
