Running up and down the east coast, out to Chicago and New Orleans from NYC every day racks up more miles than the 500 or so miles doing a roundtrip from NYC-WAS.
A NEC round trip DC to Boston would be around 1,000 miles per day. Amfleet 1.
A train running for 24 hours at around 50 mph average speed would travel around 1,200 miles per day. Amfleet 2
Not every Amfleet 2 train runs 24 hours straight, not every Amfleet 1 train is limited to just one round trip. Everything is variable considering the sizes of the fleets and different train routes being ran. Short of being able to read each individual car’s maintenance record keeping score, we will never know.
