    So as i said theres very little innovation in there...
    Diesel locomotives are essentailly as good as theyre going to get in the near future.

    And for amtraks High Speed network, they probably will use a derivate of the Acela, which is derived from the TGV Atlantique or theyll buy a AdTranz/Siemens or Bombardier Design. Probably A ICE4 Based Train.

    That isn't correct. Amtrak is buying GEC-Alsthom (Alstom) trainsets dubbed the Avelia Liberty that have a maximum speed of 186 mph but can have a max speed of 220.

    I forgot to mention GEC-Alsthom here, and hadn't looked up the tech behind the Liberty. But you still have not answered questions

    It's a very big bump sir, seeing as it's a full 6 months, and this crisis has been dead a full five and a half, so saying 'ahem, we also get trains from Alsom' really doesn't have much to add to it, so, please, don't bump
