In 2010, Amtrak awarded CAF the production of 130 cars for their long distance services.The order includes 25 sleepers, 25 dining cars, 55 baggage cars and 25 bedroom cars (which combine bed and baggage).

Passengers will experience many improvements with the new equipment including: modern interiors with better layouts; better lighting and more efficient air conditioning and heating systems.

The trains are being built at CAF’s premises in Elmira, in the State of New York.
