Yes, definitely talk to or email NS. But, start by reading the press releases that announced the order plus any other published material you can find. Look for stuff in Railway Age and Progressive Railroading plus Trains. Forget about most of what you read in the railfan press. (e.g. Railpace)

There was a quickie interview with NS's VP mechanical in a recent Trains and this topic was covered.
