I'm pretty sure there isn't any rules on stainless or not, as the turbo trains and talgos exemplify.
I thought Amtrak was only using stainless steel cars, from the beginning they eliminated a bunch of fine equipment because it wasn't stainless steel. I don't think the brightline cars are stainless steel so I doubt Amtrak would take them, though IDK what their policy on state supported services is.
Those are state supported though, so I'm betting Amtrak doesn't care as much
