Built by General Electric Transportation Systems in August 1995 and numbered 708. This series of locomotives (a total of 18 would be built) were built to replace the EMD FL9's. These "Dual-Mode" units were built to operate on diesel power above-ground and on third-rail electric power when in the tunnels going into New York's Penn Station. This unit is also equipped with an escape hatch similar to Metro-North Railroad's P32's that operate into Grand Central Terminal since Amtrak ran service there in 2018 due to trackwork at Penn Station.
