There have been electric trains for the last 100 years !

Pure electric trains are probably about 50% of the trains in the world, with Diesel–electric almost all of the other 50%, and they can also be considered electric. There are still a few steam engines operating, as well as a few pure diesel ones.

How come Amtrak North East Corridor trains cannot use GE Genesis to travel south of Penn Station?

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

Question by iatesoup: How come Amtrak North East Corridor trains cannot use GE Genesis to travel south of Penn Station?
Whenever I notice a long distance train, such as the Carolinian or the Crescent, how come their journey starts out with an electric train and then changes cabs to a GE Genesis at D.C. How come the whole entire route use the GE Genesis the whole route since they are capable of third rail power.
How come GE Genesis trains are only used on the Empire route whenever they are departing from Penn Station?

Best answer:

Answer by thddspc
The Northeast Corridor is electrified with overhead catenary. By using catenary electric locos like the AEM-7/ALP44, HHP-8 and Acela, Amtrak cuts down on diesel emissions and noise through the densely populated NEC corridor.

Not all Genesis locomotives can use third-rail power. The majority of Amtrak’s Genesis fleet are the P42DC, and they cannot use third rail (P42DC is diesel only).

Amtrak only has 20 or so P32AC-DMs, which are the version of the Genesis locos that are third-rail equipped. These are used on trains that run in New York State because diesel power is not allowed in New York tunnels. They can operate anywhere in North America, but Amtrak wants to keep those in New York where they are absolutely required.

The only place on Amtrak’s routes that are third-rail-equipped is in New York.. Nowhere else in Amtrak’s national system do they use 3rd rail (including the NEC, which is overhead catenary only).

Hope this helps.

Is it Possible for Amtrak electric locomotive trains to come to grand Central station from the Nec,?

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Question by Clavon N: Is it Possible for Amtrak electric locomotive trains to come to grand Central station from the Nec,?
Someone said that it is possible for amtrak’s Electric loco’s like for example the HHP-8 and AEM-7 to haul trains to Grand Central, all it has to do is follow the Metro-Norths New Haven Line from New Rochelle. If that’s possible would anything interrupt the trains from running on the line like clearance issues or something.

Best answer:

Answer by James H
the issue is power. Amtrak uses only overhead running anywhere from 12.5kv to 25kv AC, past Pelham, MNRR switches over to it’s heritage New York Central 700v DC third rail, something the Amtrak equipment is not designed to use. they have third rail equipped locomotives in the P32-ACDM, but those are set for the LIRR overrunning third rail at Penn station and in the river tunnels. MNRR’s third rail is bottom contact.
