Amtrak's Genesis P42 Locomotives

The Genesis P42s diesel locomotives are Amtrack's most common long-haul locomotive, if your going on long-distance ride on Amtrak, your locomotive(s-some long trains require more then one.) is bound to be a P42. Amtrak has other diesel locomotives used on Long-haul routes: there is the Genesis P40s, which it has few of, and the dual-mode Genesis P32AC-DMs these are exculively on all trains between Albany and New York, due to the fact that they have 3rd rail shoes for entering the underground Penn Station. The Genesis P42s are manufactured by GE, and are called P42 due to the fact they have 4250 Horsepower.*
