Less breakdowns but still coaches that are too hot, or too cold, or leak in the rain, or fill up with snow in the winter. Sorry to put a damper on this thread, but these engines solve only half of the problem.
Really where did you get amfleets from ACS64 (this is the name of the thread no?) Yes there are coaches that have defects but come on they are really not that bad as you make it seem and it's not like every other one has problems that effect passenger comfort. Pretty sure having a reliable loco in the first place is a bigger issue then minor here and there coach defects that are repairable.
As for ACS64 and on topic, how many amfleets/horizons are they rated to move in revenue service?
Next stop the square, journal square station next!
