The ACS-64 is a brand new electric locomotive from Kato, and is Amtrak's newest addition to its locomotive fleet for use in the electrified lines in the northeast. The N Scale ACS-64 features movable pantographs which lock into elevated and down positions, directional headlights, a brand new mechanism wrapped around Kato's legendary flywheel motor, and is geared so that it will match the speed of the GE P42 if modelers wish to run them together. #600 was the first of these locomotives to enter service and has special “David L. Gunn” Lettering on the nose to celebrate Amtrak’s president between 2002 and 2005.
