Northeast Corridor Line - Rolling Stock

Rolling Stock

All service on the Northeast Corridor Line is electric and uses either Budd/GE Arrow III electric cars built in 1978 or push-pull locomotive trains hauled by ALP-46/A locomotives. These trains are made up of Comet series cars or the new Bombardier Transportation Multilevels. The longest Multilevel trains use one ALP-46 locomotive on both ends of the train in a "pull-pull" arrangement, in order to supply adequate head-end power to all coaches without voltage drop.

Famous quotes containing the words stock and/or rolling:

    I’d rather I were dead and gone,
    And my body laid in grave,
    Ere a rusty stock o coal-black smith
    My maidenhead should have.
    Unknown. The Twa Magicians (l. 17–20)

    Look, we’re all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house—in the bedroom he’s asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he’s rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he’s paying his taxes, in the yard he’s raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he’s making a bomb to blow it all up.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)
