    Apologies if this was already posted, but these are from the NGEC update from July 2019:


    Looks like Siemens is delivering a quality product and that the new procurements are coming along nicely. Looking forward to seeing what the trainsets look like.

    Snow ingestion, and icing of the AC unit are in the report.

    Lack of spares? Very new equipment should not be using/needing new parts.

    The snow ingestion is a big problem, not just here but in Europe, so I would disagree with the quality product part, just a little. It’s a know problem when designing the equipment, unacceptable to have this issue on modern equipment.

    Regarding the new HST's I have been under the impression that the first set was going to be released by the end of September. Cause IIRC, that was the time frame that was quoted for TS 1. But, this is the railroad and things change quickly.
