Amtrak Cities Sprinter: Built across America by Siemens
The first #Siemenslocomotive, the ACS-64, to arrive in the northeast region for field testing is scheduled to depart on June 27 from the West Coast. The shipment will depart from Emeryville, Calif. traveling across the United States through Salt Lake City, Utah and Chicago, Ill. arriving in Willmington, Del. on July 2, 2013. As the locomotive travels by rail across the U.S., people can get a glimpse of this high-efficiency, electric locomotive as it rolls out of Siemens’ Sacramento manufacturing plant destined for its new home in the northeast.
Follow the locomotive's journey across America's rails on Twitter and Instagram using #Siemenslocomotive and #Amtrak, and share your own photos when it rolls through your city.
