Out of pure curiosity as a Freight engineer. What are the newest locomotives being used on the longer routes? I've seen allot of P42's just didn't know if Amtrak is using any tier 4 locomotives.

No Tier 4 on LD routes yet. But the Amtrak version of the Siemens Charger for LD is coming in the near future.

2021, Siemens should be making Chargers for Altamont Corridor Express, then they're doing Coaster, and then Amtrak. Somewhere in that time frame (maybe after Amtrak) will be VIA as well. They may also be still doing some MARC ones.

Additionally Metro North is considering ordering some.
