Amtrak's GE P32AC-DM Roster Photos
GENERAL: Amtrak owns 18 of these units numbered 700-717. They were built by GE Transportation Systems in Erie, PA with the first order (700-709) entering service in 1995 and the second order (710-717) in 1998. These units are designed to operate in 3rd Rail Electric Territory including the tunnels in and out of NY Penn Station, as well as operating on regular diesel power, thus the "DM" or "Dual-Mode" Designation. They were designed to replace aging EMD FL-9's that operated out of NY Penn Station.
SPECS: The P32's are equipped with a 12 Cylinder, 3200 Horsepower engine and AC Traction Motors. This is a smaller engine than the 16 Cylinder 4000 HP engine included in the 800 Series Genesis Units (The AMD-103's or "P40's") though this unit's top speed is higher (110mph as opposed to 103 on the P40's) because of the use of AC Traction Motor Technology. The smaller engine is also necessary so as to fit the 3rd Rail Electric Equipment into the locomotive.
TERRITORY: These units are based in Albany, NY and operate primarily between Albany and New York as well as throughout Upstate New York.
TRAINS: Most Empire Service Trains, also the Lake Shore Limited (NY to Albany), Maple Leaf, Ethan Allen Express & Adirondack.
NOTES: Units #700-709 were delivered in Phase III paint with #710-717 in Phase IV paint. All units today are in Phase Vb paint.
