Beat me to it, thanks! Brief, fair-use:
Siemens today will open a new, 44,000-square-foot locomotive service hub in Delaware that will use digital and predictive technology to remotely maintain the units for several railroad operators.

Located in New Castle, the facility will use "Internet of Trains" digital and predictive technology to train service technicians and remotely monitor more than 140 Siemens-built locomotives for customers across the United States, company officials said in a press release.

Siemens' customers include Amtrak, the Maryland Transit Administration, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and Illinois Department of Transportation. The facility also will monitor full trainsets for Brightline, the passenger railroad that soon will begin service in southeast Florida.
Next stop, Willoughby
