Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The AEM-7 is a B-B electric locomotive that is used in the United States on the Northeast Corridor between Washington DC and Boston and the Keystone Corridor between Philadelphia and Harrisburg in Pennsylvania. They were built by Electro-Motive Division from 1978 to 1988. In the Boston Mechanical Department of Amtrak they are known as "Meatballs" and in the Washington Mechanical Department they are known as ASEAs since some of their major parts and components were designed in Sweden by ASEA, which merged with Brown Boveri in 1988 forming ABB. They are also referred to as "toasters" by railfans, owing to their boxy appearance. 70 new locomotives, designated the ACS-64, are expected to replace the AEM-7 and HHP-8s; they will enter service over several years, starting in 2013.show more
