Passenger BL36PH

Recommended Posts

The BROOKVILLE BL36PH is the next generation of diesel-electric passenger locomotives for North America. Among the cleanest passenger locomotives being delivered in the United States, the locomotive is constructed with a modern all-steel aerodynamic nose and a semi-monocoque frame allowing for a stylish lightweight and safe locomotive.

 

Safety and comfort for the operator of this locomotive is provided from the desk style operator’s console located in the crashworthy cab built to comply with the current federal standards for locomotive crashworthiness. The operator has improved cab ergonomics, as well as better visibility from reduced blind spots from three large front and two side windows.

 

The locomotive has been highly engineered to ensure the safety, efficiency and reliability for passenger railway systems.

Looks nice. The million dollar question will be is how it will perform. If it does well Amtrak maybe eying this as a replacement for the Genesis.

 

Unlikely, at best. Amtrak will probably stick to more proven designs from GE, or possibly EMD, as they plan to purchase new diesels that comply with the PRIIA specifications, which I don't believe the Brookville locomotive meets at this point in time.

IIRC they already have an order placed my Miami's TriRail with Sounder added on 2 units to that order.
