Well, Timken 1111/NP2626 by itself was an innovation.
It's also surprising there are no E or PA units that banished steam from passenger trains.
The F40 & the change to HEP should make a list somewhere? No more steam heat for the customers.
It may be too political to talk about all the commuter systems owned & operated by local government agencies?
Is the Acela a success? can it stand in for the French TGV or other high-speed trains? To my mind, shows how far the US is behind in rail technology.
