Biden visiting Philly to unveil new Amtrak engine

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is heading to Philadelphia to unveil Amtrak’s newest engine.

He’ll use the event at 30th Street Station to stress the need for infrastructure investment.

Thursday’s news conference will feature a look at Amtrak’s new Cities Sprinter electric locomotive. The U.S.-built engine will power trains along the Northeast Corridor from Boston to Washington.

Biden frequently commuted on Amtrak to Washington from his home state of Delaware during his long tenure in the Senate.

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx is also slated to attend the event.
