Oracle R12 required careful up-front work to establish funding patterns

Funding & Programming
Any Questions?
The F-125 Power Plant is cradle mounted for easy removal of the entire package rather than one component at a time.

The quick disconnect features allow the package to be replaced in 30 man-hours. This means a 60% reduction in labor hours as compared to the labor hours required for the same task in the older Metrolink locomotives.

Driving Factors Behind F-125
Tier 4 Schedule 2013-2017
The F-125 Layout
Crash Energy Management (CEM) in Final Design

Multiple energy absorbing
components to meet PRIIA
Crashworthiness Standards

Crash Energy Management
The Crash Energy Management design provides several features that absorb and dissipate energy

The SCRRA and an Amtrak Locomotive Engineer
traveled to Spain for the initial Cab Mock-up inspection
last December. The engineers' participation ensured proper
ergonomic design, effective layout of cab operational
devices and safety features.

Truck Design
This two axle truck design by Vossloh Spain comes with a
30 year service life and it has no wear surfaces. This provides
for a stable ride at speeds up to 125 MPH.
