Amtrak continues to receive its newest locomotives for the Northeast Corridor, with the national passenger railroad receiving its third one in Delaware. The Siemems-built electric locomotives operate up to 125 mph and feature a variety of safety and maintenance features. However, the $466 million purchase for a total of 70 locomotives has also met criticism. Amtrak’s Inspector General accused the railroad of making purchases without an assessment of how many new vehicles it actually needs. The IG concluded that Amtrak needs only 56 locomotives, while Amtrak counters that purchasing 70 locomotives right now would avoid the uncertainty of buying them in the future due to ever-inadequate funding.
