Re: Massachusetts state senate backs plan to electrify MBTA Providence and Fairmount commuter lines

MARC is not going all diesel because of Amtrak's alleged electricity rates, but because Amtrak won't service the AEM-7s anymore and the Maryland MTA isn't getting ACS-64s to replace them (but funny enough, SEPTA is).

Besides, the state of Massachusetts owns its portion of the Northeast Corridor within its borders and Amtrak pays them to use it; the only real quid pro quo would be on the Rhode Island side FWICS.
