So until the country has a grasp on what ridership system wide I find any retirements except for severely damaged cars to be problematic.Amtrak plans to order Siemens Venture 83 trainsets for the NEC. Wisconsin plans to order 9 cars. Without knowing the exact details of the Amtrak order, it is difficult to list how many cars. The Midwest had ordered 88 new cars, California had ordered 49 cars, for a total of 137 previously. So adding at least 9 to those previously subtotals 146.
