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. This unit was built in 1982 and today is still configured with DC Traction. Historical information about this locomotive provided by www.amtrakbythenumbers.com.
