The Amfleet I coach is operated by Amtrak on the Northeast Corridor route between Washington and Boston in conjunction with ACS-64 locomotives. This is a Kato 1068001DCC N Scale ACS-64 and Amfleet I Phase VI 5-Unit Bookcase Set with Pre-installed DCC.

The Amfleet I could be replaced by Siemens built coach cars of Siemens own design. Amtrak could decide to order Amfleet II replacements based on the Viewliner II, so they would have a consistent type for the eastern LD fleet. Amfleet I cars are mostly used on corridor trains in the northeast, such as the Downeaster or Northeast Regional; Amfleet II cars are used on long-distance trains, such as the Cardinal or Silver Star. Description Railroad Short Name: AMTK To upgrade its elderly fleet of cars, some in service since the late 1940s, Amtrak took delivery of its first all-new Amfleet I cars in 1975 for inter-city service in the close clearances of the eastern US. Based on the Budd-built Metroliner, nearly 500 coach and food service cars were delivered by 1978.

The ACS-64, also known as the 'Amtrak Cities Sprinter', is Amtrak's replacement of the aging AEM-7 and HHP-8 electric locomotives for operation in the Northeast and Keystone Corridors. Built by Siemens and based on the EuroSprinter European electric locomotive design, the Cities Sprinter is nonetheless a unique model to North America and is built entirely in the United States. The Prototype, entering service as of February 2014, is meant to pull as many as 18 Amfleet cars at speeds of up to 125 miles per hour!
Amfleet I: During its beginnings, Amtrak inherited its passenger cars from other railroads. Old, steam heated and in dire need of upgrades, Amtrak set out to replace these cars in 1973 with the purchase of the first Amfleet cars from Budd. This initial batch of 492 cars were the Amfleet I - with a door and vestibule on either end (unlike their single-doored successor), these cars fell into a few different varieties but essentially broke down into coach and dinette variants. Despite the introduction of their newer cousins, Amfleet I's are still in use by Amtrak, primarily for shorter distance routes.
