Interesting there is only one level door from the photo. The interiors looks like the SLV
Hopefully there will be space for bikes and luggage racks.

Seems like we will get half the deliveries this year.

Edit: I'm curious if Septa will pick up more ACS-64 unless Septa plans on retiring the bombardier push-pull cars

Quarter point doors. There's no end door on that car at that end since it's a cab car.

First cars next year

The most recent plan I heard was:
7 6-Car Single Levels
7 6-Car Multilevels
One spare ACS, just like with the AEM-7s. Actually, one more spare than with the AEM-7s.

Nice cars. Any thoughts on what runs would be logical candidates to receive the cars? Doubling the number of push pull runs would be pretty dramatic upgrade. You could cover almost all the expresses with 12 push pull sets in the current schedule.

I apologize, I meant to say 6 6-Car Single-Level Consists. There are only 35 trailers.
