Remarks & Notes 
Three Amtrak Turbo Trains, three Amtrak Turbos, one by one they all got scrapped, how many Turbos now left on the track? Not a single unit was preserved, a sad ending for what is still the current North American speed record holder for a production train (170.8 mph December 20th, 1967).
