PC: Re: RE: Re: E-60's

In 1974-75 all Amtrak trains were heated by steam both diesel and electric/
engines. HEP cars did not exist then on Amtrak.  Hudson Line trains were
still steam heated cars and boiler equiped E8's. Only EL was operating HEP
powered passenger cars in the NJ-NY metro area.

No GE Model E60CH exists. There were ony E60CP and E60CF models. All HO
models show the E60 with steam generator equipment as built. After Amtrak
installed HEP they were reclassified by Amtrak as E60MA.
