I think you summed this up nicely. You're almost expecting someone thing to fill out the engine. Who knows...maybe Amtrak will sell ad space on the side of the ACS-64s. Goodness knows there is enough room![/quote][/quote][/quote][/quote]
Thanks ThirdRail, honestly, they need to do something about it. the ACS itself is a good looking engine, but that phase V.. man if my car was painted that shade of gray, I would fall asleep just looking at it because it would be just that boring to look at, to paint that much of a whole locomotive that color?.. that's just.. how should we say it.. special on Amtraks part.
(just to be clear, that was intentional sarcasm/dramatization with the falling asleep bit.. if you fall asleep looking at vehicles... you best not be on the road).
