Designed by Allmänna Svenska Elektriska Aktiebolaget (ASEA) in Sweden (now part of the Asea Brown Boveri or ABB Group), these 7000 horsepower-equivalent locomotives were assembled by General Motors Electro-Motive Division as replacement locomotives for the General Electric E60 locomotives. Built in April 1981 with DC Traction, this unit was converted to AC Traction in December 2001. It is also the second Amtrak lcomotive to wear the number 921 (A GG-1 electric was the first).
