|The following 24 cars were assigned to "evacuation fleet" duty, and moved to New Orleans during July and August, 2006. In some cases the car's COT&S date exceeded the four-year legal requirement, but Amtrak had obtained a waiver from the FRA to use these cars on a short-notice evacuation train.
These cars are not listed as active on the rolling stock page unless they are in an overhaul status. These cars had been stored dead or in a wreck repair status prior to this assignment.
In December, 2007 the cars were removed from New Orleans as the lease to keep the cars in New Orleans expired. They were moved north on the Crescent on eight consecutive trains from 12/1/07 to 12/8/07. Upon their return to Delaware they initially went to the locations listed in the Dec. 2007.
The December 2009 status of these cars are listed in the right column. Several of these cars were part of the FY 2009 Capstone upgrade program. and all remaining cars on this list have been selected for overhaul as part of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act equipment program. (These cars have (ARRA) in the right column.)
