There will be 70 new electric locomotives for Northeast corridor between Washington and Boston and the Keystone Corridor between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia in between 2013 to 2019. Amtrak’s 70 new locomotives will be replacing those 1980′s old 64 locomotives and those locomotives that have reached 3.5 million miles on the odometer and have a peak power of 10,000 horsepower and draw over 5 megawatts.
These Amtrak’s electric trains that will be produced by Siemens AG will all have regenerative braking, a high-tech feature that will store energy produced while stopping into a storage battery for use whenever required. Siemens is planning to build the new electric trains factory in Sacramento, California, with 2 megawatts of solar cells on the roof, and will be arriving by February 2013. This green initiative will cost Amtrak about USD466 millions.
Siemens AG is building these new electric trains on a design it already sells in Europe.
