HORNELL, N.Y. — Alstom workers gearing up to build 28 high-speed trainsets for the Northeast Corridor are 'amped' now that they've received the first electric
motor for the trains.

The Penn Yan, N.Y., Chronicle-Express reports that the Hornell shop took in the large electric motor on Friday, Oct. 20, amid already high spirits.

The package comes days after Hornell city leaders gave a further approval to let Alstom continue expanding production space, including three shops.

Alstom is set to build 28 Avelia Liberty trainsets for Amtrak use on the Northeast Corridor in a contract worth about $2 billion. The first of the trainsets is expected to enter service in 2021.
