Kato N Siemens ACS-64, DC
Amtrak  #648

Kato Item #: 137-3003

The ACS-64, also known as the “Amtrak Cities Sprinter”, is Amtrak’s replacement of the aging AEM-7 and HHP-8 electric locomotives for operation in the Northeast and Keystone Corridors. Built by Siemens and based on the EuroSprinter European electric locomotive design, the Cities Sprinter is nonetheless a unique model to North America and is built entirely in the United States. The Prototype, entering service as of February 2014, is meant to pull as many as 18 Amfleet cars at speeds of up to 125 miles per hour!

The new Cities Sprinter locomotive will come bundled with a brand new car, prototypically appropriate for the ACS-64 operation!
