Of course. The Phase IV scheme was nice, but in horrible shape. Phase V is their current cheme (Even though it would be nice if they tried something new, because Acela itself was almost 10 years ago ).
The P40's will most likely be kept at one maintenance base and in captive service, which means either Auto train or the New Haven based Springfield line.
Still conventional brakes as before, they upgraded pretty much everything else to P42 standard. One of these units was on display at the Amtrak Town Hall meeting tonight. The shop manager we talked with said that they had wanted to change to electronic brakes on the last two engines to be rebuilt, but that the time to get the parts would have stretched the rebuild out too long to hit their deadlines. However, they did make a number of other upgrades, which I didn't catch the specifics of, including upgrading all of the cab displays and equipment.Did they convert the brakes on them?
