Amtrak Mechanical Services

Carrying 50 Million Passengers Requires Serious Muscle

Amtrak Mechanical Services Amtrak Mechanical Services - Diesel Engines Amtrak Mechanical Services

For 40 years, Amtrak has been America's Railroad. And our mechanical services have played no small part in that legacy. 50 million passengers rely on the more than 2,000 pieces of equipment maintained by Amtrak each year.

Currently partnering with 15 states and four commuter rail agencies, including the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), Sound Transit, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA) and the Shore Line East (SLE), we have over 4,500 dedicated mechanical staff operating in facilities across the country, maximizing equipment reliability while minimizing cost. We serve rail providers by building mutually beneficial, long-term relationships that provide the highest degree of customer service and value to our business partners.
