Locomotive Engineer!!!
Last night they were testing the new Siemens SC-44 Charger engine #4611 in the Amtrak yard at Holgate Street in Seattle, WA and taking it to the Coach Y for clearance testing. It will be going to Vancouver, BC and Portland, OR over the next couple of days so be on the look out for it. This is not an engine that will remain here. The actual engines that Amtrak Cascades will be receiving later this year will be painted in Cascades colors and have an appropriate number in sequence. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
