Siemens Charger

2013; Siemens signs a 225-locomotive frame contract with several US states. This paves the way for Siemens to make the Charger a new standard locomotive for passenger trains in North America. The interesting thing is that these operators all work under entirely different conditions, have different fleets and service demands, are active in entirely different places, east coast, west coast, the mid-west, but Siemens has managed to supply them with a locomotive that can meet all these variable conditions.
