Don't worry. Amtrak will fix that pronto :D

That makes me wonder more seriously about an example of an Amtrak supplier who has not screwed up in this century. How does their performance when supplying to other customers compare? Customer in the US? Customer in the rest of the world? What's the difference if any? I don't know. Just wondering aloud.
Didn't the last Genesis locomotives ordered by Amtrak in the early 2000s have fewer issues compared to the units built in the 1990s? I don't know if that counts, but that order did happen in the beginning of this century.
