Locomotives can deadhead on trains for several reasons. In this video we first see AMTK 457 deadheading to Chicago to become part of the METRA roster.
AMTK 505 makes its way through the 505 area code on its way to the Beech Grove maintenance facility in Indiana.
Sometimes the deadhead didn’t start out that way. Two video segments show BNSF coming to the aid of Amtrak after mechanical problems on their locomotives required some help.
And finally we feature three video segments of new Siemen’s Chargers. Two of these segments show the Chargers making their way out of Albuquerque on their way to new homes in the east. One of the segments shows the Chargers arriving in Albuquerque and then being set out for a later move to the locomotive testing facility in Pueblo, Colorado.
