The Acela HHP-8 is a double-ended electric locomotive manufactured by a consortium of Bombardier and Alstom. HHP-8 stands for High HorsePower 8000. They replaced the GE E60s and supplement the aging AEM-7s on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, though some of the AEM-7s have been upgraded to match the hauling power of the HHP-8s because the HHP-8s suffered from intractable reliability problems. The locomotive can haul Amfleet cars at speeds of up to 125 mph (201 km/h). They are sometimes referred to by train crews as "Hippos", "Rhinos", and "Bananas".
