I'd of course prefer a 3rd Rail one as it would best capture the details, but I might consider a Lionel version if they did it first.  The biggest challenge is getting the licensing agreement with Siemens.  Bachmann has an agreement for the SC-44 model in HO and it is not clear if they also have it available for O scale. 

GGD has scale Viewliners and Amfleets going on the water in the next few weeks for August delivery.  Can't wait to see them in person and an ALC-42 would be nice to lead those cars as Amtrak's long distance locomotive of the future.

I'd agree on a 3rd Rail ALC-42.  I'd pay a premium if it meant getting a license from Siemens.

With LD Viewliners coming from GGD, I think it'd be awesome to have a ALC-42 pull a string of Viewliners and maybe a future run of Amfleet IIs.

  I hope that the unfortunate cancellation of the E60 doesn't kill the prospects of new Amtrak power.  But, I would speculate that an ALC-42 would appeal to more people than an E60 which would be limited to those with a catenary system who model the Corridor.
