AMTRAK'S FRENCH-BUILT TURBINE TRAINS

Amtrak's French-built turbine trains operate between Chicago, Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri. The U.S. government-owned rail passenger corporation has options with ANF-Frangeco to purchase four to eight more of the trains, in addition to the two now being leased, during the 18 month trial period. Propulsion and auxiliary power aboard the trains is supplied by Turbomeca gas turbines.
