[US / Expert] Amtrak tests Siemens Chargers on long-distance routes (great video!)

We are very happy to announce this marvelous video produced by CoasterFan2105 alias Mike Amstrong. It will tell you the story about locomotive IDTX 4627 and IDTX 4628 that Amtrak recently borrowed from the State of Illinois to test the Siemens Charger on long-haul passenger trains across the United States. Amtrak has 75 Charger locomotives on order (ALC-42 specification) for this purpose. The first machines will be delivered in the second half of 2021.

We thank CoasterFan2105 for his cooperation. Make sure to check out his other videos on youtube, the guy makes great things and has over 500.000 subscribers.
