...was there any discussion here of the Amtrak Inspector General report, date Nov 16 2017 ? It stated there was already a 3 month slip or delay in the design and production schedule.
The infrastructure portion of the program includes 10 projects on the Northeast Corridor totaling $850 million. ... four of these projects must be completed to run the new trainsets, and two must be completed to run trains on the higher-frequency timetable.
Anyone want to bet that all of these projects will be completed by 2021 or 2022?
Completed on schedule? Nah. Alstom says they're already 89 days behind. In the end, I'm betting that the Sunnyside Yard item entangled with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is the one Least Likely To Succeed. YMMV
89 days isn't much on such a large order like this. I have faith in Alstom. Unlike the Bombardier-Alstom Consortium.
