Two MI Amtrak Chargers in Chicago

Unread post by twropr »

Please be on the lookout for Chargers on test trains between Chicago and Town Line. The post on trainorders.com said the units had numbers of 26 and 30; I suspect they are 4626 and 4630. Once they are inspected, they should be pulling test trains. Having come from Pueblo, I assume they have ITCS and had been tested there.

I posted in the ITCS P42 thread, you can get my sources there. But Chargers should be back to testing on the MI line soon (probably more training then testing, as they've already done some testing on the line) with them running revenue service before the summer... if all goes according to plan.
