Amtrak has received and is now testing their newest and most advanced train - the Alstom Avelia Liberty.
Manufactured by Alstom in France for use on Amtrak's high-speed Northeast Corridor, the first electric trainset is expected to go into revenue service in 2021, with the further 27 sets (for a total of 28) going into service by 2022.
I've personally never been on the Northeast Corridor, or on an Amtrak train in general, but I of course found the new trainsets fascinating, particularly because they're electric, which I've always found interesting in the realm of locomotive power.
I do think the power car looks a little stumpy/short compared to the rest of the train, but it's not a bad looking setup at all. Though I wish an American company could have built it (GE, EMD, etc), high speed electric trainsets of this style are definitely a sector in which the French are on the top of the list, with the USA focusing more on the big powerful diesel freight engines, which is a sector in which we lead.
Anyway, nifty looking setup; hopefully it'll be a rousing success and last for many years... cause we sure don't need any more problems. 😁
