Has this project been completed or at least close to it?

Every single Amfleet I've been on or seen in the past couple months have been refreshed, so I'm going to say yes.

Oh same here, I just wondered if there are a few cars left.

They weren't changing the seats, they were changing the cushions and covers, so the seat frames and pedestals were staying.

Probably the Amfleet last overhaul these cars get until their replacements (most likely SIemens) arrive.

 

I'm interested to hear where you heard that replacements are coming.

There’s a RFP out for replacement cars, isn’t there?

I thought it was made pretty clear in the RFP that Amtrak is looking for new single-levels...

To the best of my recollection, they issued an RFI, which included potential replacements of a few different types. From the responses/submissions given by potential suppliers, they will formulate an RFP, which will likely be issued in 2019.

This is what I was looking for. :) Kudos. :)

RFI and RFP is two different beasts IMO. RFI means that something is possible. RFP means we're looking to place an order give us your best price. ;)

Recommendations for Amfleet I replacements will be made to Amtrak's Board of Directors in mid-November. Locomotive replacement recommendations will be made in "mid-October", which is probably soon if it hasn't happened already. We will likely have an idea where Amtrak is going at the end of the month when the October NGEC minutes are out, as they are being briefed on the procurements by Amtrak's Charlie King.
