I present to you a repainted ALP-46 with full custom Amtrak Livery (AEM-7, HHP-8, AND ACS-64 hybridized design) and assorted consists to operate it with, including Surfliner trains and Amfleet trains. (More info below download links)

Download the train pack here: ... k_V1.0.rar" onclick=";return false;
To install, simply drag the folder named Amtrak ALP-46 from the zip file to your pre-existing ALP-46 folder.
The original ALP-46 Pack V1.0 is here: ... Train_Pack_(Complete_Exteriors" onclick=";return false;)_V1.0.rar
Some routes to run it on: ... n_Pack.rar" onclick=";return false; ... e_Pack.rar" onclick=";return false; ... s_Pack.rar" onclick=";return false;" onclick=";return false; ... lyomvar.gz" onclick=";return false;" onclick=";return false;" onclick=";return false;

Rated power (Max): 6400 kW
Rated power (Continuous): 6000 kW
Brake power (Continuous): 6000 kW
