|ROAD DIESELS (Including Leased and Caltrans-Owned Units)|
#Equipment previously in this series (e.g., turboliners, GP40s, F40s, etc.) was renumbered
*Out of service P42s as of 01/01/17: 8, 21, 49, 51, 65, 66, 70, 80, 91, 128, 141, 171, 178, 185 and 190; 143 & 149 have been retired. Since 01/01/16 this number may vary as units are returned to service, or additional units are placed out of service.
**Some Amtrak F40s are still in service elsewhere or preserved.
***These units were rebuilt from the former Go Transit GP40s by NS at the Juniata Locomotive Shops with the same numbers as now: 520-527.
****Owned by Caltrans.
*****Further information can be found here. Several of these units were rebuilt by Beech Grove in 2009-2011 to P42 standards through the "ARRA" program.
|*Units received from CSX in exchange for title to F40 Nos. 390 and 395.
**Ordered from Motive Power Industries in May, 2004. Delivery began in November, 2004, and all 10 were delivered to Bear, DE, by February, 2005. Initial reports had these classified as MP15Bs, nameplate data calls them GP15s and Amtrak refers to them as GP15D.
|Multi-State (PRIIA) ROAD DIESELS|
|In conjunction with the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (PRIIA) the Section 305 Next Generation Equipment Committee wrote specifications for a number of different vehicles, including a diesel locomotive capable of reaching sustained speeds of 125 mph. These locomotives are being purchased through various PRIIA and Stimulus grant funds administered by the FRA. The locomotives will be owned by individual states, and operate on short distance routes (750 miles or less) under state sponsorship. Illinois (IDOT) is acting as the oversight state for a consortium of Midwest states including Illinois, Michigan and Missouri. Other locomotives will be owned by Washington state (WSDOT) and California (Caltrans). These locomotives are similar to ones being built by Siemens for the private All Aboard Florida (FEC) route and MARC for commuter lines between Washington, DC, and Baltimore, MD/Frederick, MD and Harpers Ferry, WV.|
