This link is to a Rail Passengers Association (RPA) hotline post about Amtrak's proposed framework to accommodate ADA requirements in its upcoming LD fleet order.
https://mailchi.mp/narprail/hotline1324The post addresses multiple myths such as the trainsets being permanently coupled, the renderings being representative of a near-final design, and Amtrak needing to complete the order by year-end.
RPA calls out Amtrak for being "horribly" late with the fleet order and calls for a sense of urgency in getting it done. They also state that refurbishing Superliners is an acceptable "stopgap measure" but question Amtrak's ability to execute on such a task.
