From over a year and a half ago, and rehashed and debated endlessly here at the time in perhaps the longest thread ever at RyPN:

There have been a series of requests for proposals issued over the last few years for new passenger motive power, particularly by commuter rail operators, and quite a few contracts have been awarded. I am not aware of any proposals for new steam locomotive technology having been submitted in any of those recent equipment acquisitions. There has been plenty of opportunity to bid a product, if anyone actually has one to offer.
