Robert, Amtrak trains don't have motormen, they have engineers! LOL....as far as ACSES, ACSES would not slow the train to the correct speed, it would give a penalty application of the brakes when the train is over the speed limit.

I call them "motormen" just for the fun of it, already stuck with subways.

And it's even better for the train to come to a full stop and not slow down, glad ACSES freezes the trains and not slow them down, just like the Red Line subways, the go through the same thing if they don't comply with the cab signal top speed indicated in the motorman's panel.
