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 1981 with DC Traction, this unit was converted to AC Traction in October 2001. Historical information about this locomotive provided by www.amtrakbythenumbers.com.
