WILMINGTON, DE - On Monday, Amtrak introduced their newest locomotive which is decorated in Red, White and Blue, and is adorned with a bright gold bow which reads "Amtrak's Railroad Salutes Our Veterans." The engine will operate along the Northeast Corridor, and is sure to catch the sight of northern New Jersey train enthusiasts.
Presently, 21% of Amtrak's workers are Veterans and the company is actively recruiting former soldiers to fill their engineer, mechanics and maintenance worker posts. Amtrak's goal is to have Veterans make up 25% of their workforce by the end of this year.
