Can somebody post an up to date list of those units still running please?
  by amtrakhogger
 
A few, 916, 941, and the 946. Those are some I have come across in the last week.

I was going to tell you to search but then I realized the thread on this board is closed and I was doing updates on another. Currently, Amtrak has the 908,914,916,919,920,921,923,924,929,934,939,940,941,942 and 946 active, although I expect 2 of those to drop off in a week or so. They are all remans which originally numbered 29. All of Amtrak's DC fleet is o/o/s and in a lot of cases, scrapped.

MARC still has the 4900, 4902 and 4903 in service. They are all DCs

I can only comment on SEPTA through visual observances and I have seen the 2300, 2307, 2305 and 2303 in the last two weeks. There may be more and they are all DCs.

There is also one lonely ALP-44 in service at SEPTA. It is the last one operating in the country although I'm not sure which class of ALP-44 it is. I suppose I could look ,but I really don't care enough to do so.

Perhaps you can wander down to the wayside and grab some pictures and keep a count.

Thanks for the update. SEPTA has AEM-7 2301 to 2307 (no # 2300) plus ALP-44M 2308

Living in Europe around 3000mi from the NEC that is not an option!

Can't remeber the last time I saw an AEM-7 (or for that matter a HHP-8) on a NEC train... the Sprinters are now everywhere!

The HHP8's were put up into storage several months ago....

Except for the MARC units, which aren't long for this world either.

One can only hope.

you probably heard the news that SEPTA ordered 13 ACS-64's with 5 options and they're expected to be here in 2018

That was supposed to be the 2306. I saw the 2306.

At any rate, another one bites the dust:

Four were outside at 30th Street Monday afternoon. Perhaps some of them are on their way to retirement.

The 923 was on loan to MARC for a few days.

I saw one parked under the lower train shed at PHL yesterday. It was on the far-easterly station track at the northern tip of the platform coupled to something diesel.
