I feel as though Siemens is trying to entice Amtrak by having almost 200 avaliable units, but Amtrak a) doesn't have the funding, and b) doesn't plan on replacing their current diesels until 2024. Which means that the Genesis series will be about thirty years old by the time they're replaced.
>>915731 As far as design, this is from Siemens's overview of the ACS-64: "The engine room layout is similar to the European Vectron locomotive and most of the electrical components are designed identical. " As for components, one of the limitations in the funding that was given to Amtrak for the ACS-64 was that "at least 90% of the locomotive had to be produced in the United States" it didn't say what that 90% was, whether it was by number of parts, or mass, or whatever. >>915911 Probably bright safety red for "DON'T TOUCH THIS" so they don't get sued by people who weren't supposed to be anywhere near there in the first place.
