New, Powerful Locomotive Rolls into Del.

Today, U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del) visited our Wilmington Maintenance Facility to see the Amtrak Cities Sprinter (ACS-64), our new and more powerful locomotive coming to the Northeast and Keystone Corridors. The Siemens-manufactured ACS-64 is undergoing a portion of its testing in Delaware.

Don't laugh now, what does that red extension do on the top of the new locomotives?  It looks like its optional and can be controlled by the engineer!
