Amtrak 958 a GE E60 design was a successor to the Pennsylvania Railroad’s GG1. When Amtrak took over America’s long-distance passenger service in 1973, the GG1 fleet it inherited was in the twilight of its usefulness. As a replacement, Amtrak ordered 37 of GE’s passenger variant of the E60. Due to a poor truck design which made them prone to derailments, the E60s were restricted to 90 miles per hour, and never proved to be fully-capable replacements for the GG1.
