Amtrak HHP-8 Locomotives
The HHP-8 Locomotives are Amtrak's newest electric locomotives, purchased in 1998-2001 to add to the requirement for a larger electric fleet with the electrification from New York to Boston. The locomotives fronts are modeled to look like Acela's with a curved front (although the curve isn't as great as Acela's) and our double ended. They were originally used on the 'Acela Regional' trains (these have been since renamed just regional) before and while Acela Express was being introduced.
