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.
The 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.
