Sorry, this is way beyond V-IIs.
You said it, Mr. Stephens; this topic has gone wild.
Official sources have simply gone "Ziplips" regarding when, or if, the 37 remaining V-II's will be delivered. Even the reliable "internal" sources around here have gone noticably silent.
But lest we forget the contract between Amtrak and CAF is bilateral and exempt from public disclosure. Any litigation that has or may arise from the execution of this contract is likewise shielded.
It's time for "Phase V - Acceptance" that little, if any, information regarding performance of the contract will be available in the public domain.
But allow me to say, this has been the most "botched" major procurement of equipment Amtrak has confronted within its 47 years of existence.
