Raw Footage of Siemens Charger SC-44 4601 Cummins QSK95 Testing @ The TTCI in Pueblo, CO (125 MPH)
 
03:07
READ FIRST: EDIT 7: As of April 2017, the first 6 Caltrans locos have been delivered to Oakland. IDTX 4611 is now in Chicago. 9 locomotives have been conditionally accepted by IDOT after having completed their burn-in testing at Pueblo. EDIT 6: As of early March 2017, the first two WASDOT locomotives have been complete and are undergoing burn-in testing @ Pueblo before being sent to Washington State for introduction on Cascades services. EDIT 5: As of late February 2017, IDTX 4611 is undergoing test runs on WSDOT Cascades territory; here is the best clip of the locomotive testing so far: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6Gz_kZ2NjQ EDIT 4: As of 12/8/16, the first AAF Brightline train has departed the Siemens plant enroute to Florida: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELkw306DaCo EDIT 3: As of 12/2/16, 4611 is on WSDOT property for Cascade service testing (or at least testing in that territory). The status of 4603 is unknown at this time. EDIT 2: As of 11/14/16, the following is known: 4601-4602 are back @ the Siemens Plant, 4604 remains on MARC property. 4603 is to head north to Washington State for testing along the Cascades route. All remaining locomotives up to and including 4610 to head to Pueblo, CO for 500 mile burn-in testing before being shipped to Chicago for acceptance and entry into service on Chicago based regional routes. Additionally, initial roster numbers revealed; IDOT 4601-4632, Caltrans 2101-2120, WSDOT 1400-1407. EDIT 1: As of 8/10/16, 4601 & 4602 have concluded testing @ TTCI; 4604 has arrived on the NEC for late night testing in real-world conditions later this month. EDIT 2: As of 9/7/16, 4604 is in Philadelphia for testing on the Northeast Corridor within the next week. Before you ask, ALL info on the Charger can be found compiled here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siemens_Charger As I did with the ACS-64 when that tested at the TTCI, here's new footage of the Siemens Charger (SC-44) locomotives (4601) testing at 125 miles per hour out in Pueblo Colorado with MARC bilevel cars. This is the first time we get to hear what the new Cummins QSK95 high speed diesel sounds like. I get the impression that it makes the Charger sound like an oversized Dodge Ram lmao. Enjoy the action, and stay tuned for delivery updates that I will post in this description as I did on the ACS-64 b-roll video. Credits to Amtrak, IDOT, and Siemens.

04:30
Due to some landscaping that was going on just north of the station, there was a Flagman on duty, which means that you are guaranteed horn action from every passing train. Great day to hit up Jersey Avenue! Enjoy =) Equipment includes ACS-64, AEM-7AC, & Acela Express train sets. Action is between 1:15 PM and 2:15 PM.

Due to power draw issues on the other lines, the entirety of the 7k fleet has been moved to and restricted to service on the Green and Yellow Lines only for the time being.

Amtrak HD EXCLUSIVE 60fps: Siemens ACS-64 642 Veterans Unit First Day in Revenue Service 7/2/15
 
02:58
Amtrak's ACS-64 Salute Our Veterans Unit #642 entered service today (7/2/15) on the Northeast Regional trains 184 - 129 rotation. We see her on train 184 at Secaucus Junction and on train 129 at Metropark. Enjoy =) Side note: I would have gotten 642 on 184 at Metropark also, if NJ Transit hadn't royally fucked me over (making me miss a crucial connecting train) and left me hanging at Secaucus Junction. Next time I am on such a tight time schedule, I am most certainly driving. Fuck NJ Transit.

I find the comments from the crew about the engine being "too quiet" amusing. #thatsthewayitshouldbe EDIT 1: New video of locomotive 601 testing at 125 mph out in Pueblo, CO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbHIUFajhbM That's a beautiful sounding 3rd Generation K5LA. Here are some links to keep track of the locomotives: http://w3.usa.siemens.com/mobility/us/en/rail-solutions/locomotives/Pages/amtrak-cities-sprinter.aspx - Siemens USA Page, including a tracking feature, to help railfans and buffs to plan ahead and catch the cross country moves. http://w3.usa.siemens.com/mobility/us/en/interurban-mobility/rail-solutions/locomotives/Documents/Amtrak_DataSheet_2013_LR.pdf - Official Siemens Datasheet for the locomotives. Still lacks a tractive effort curve graph, which somewhat disappoints me. Credits to Amtrak and Siemens

03:53
EDIT 23: I am aware that there's something wrong with this video lol. It appears to have somehow become corrupted. Hopefully it fixes itself; if not, oh well.

READ FIRST: 1930s museum train on the 2016 "Shopper's Special". Mostly shot on 12/18/16. Clips from 2nd Avenue, 14th Street, 23rd Street, 34th Street - Herald Square, 53rd Street & 5th Avenue, and Court Square - 23rd Street, not necessarily in that order. I did my best to try to capture the loud motor sounds from R1 car 381 which was on the north end of the consist this year. As you can see, 34th St wasn't very cooperative lmao.

Amtrak HD: Freshly Rebuilt GE P32-8WH 512 Leads Pennsylvanian Train 43 Through Tyrone, PA (3/18/15)

EDIT: Video from 3/22/15 with 512 and Viewliner Bag Car 61006: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74G1_Fk2t8E Being based in State College puts me pretty close to Tyrone and Altoona, both of which are stops on the Pennsylvanian. I was lucky enough to catch the newly overhauled GE Dash 8-32BWH 512. Apparently the Dash 8s are undergoing a rebuild program at Beech Grove, with 512 receiving hers slightly early due to her 7FDL-12 prime mover quitting on the job about a year ago. Here she is, back with a new coat of Phase V paint and wicked sounding Hybrid K5LA. Enjoy =)

The New Haven Line gets VERY busy during the rush hours, and that is evident from only half an hour of my being there (5:00 pm to 5:30 pm). Enjoy the action =) Among the many trains seen is a 12 car M8 EMU set, and Amtrak ACS-64 670 on its first revenue run double heading with 649 on Northeast Regional train 137. The unit was testing only just yesterday, but experienced a cab signal failure, and had to be put on a revenue train in the trailing position so it could be moved back down to Washington DC for inspection and repair.

Aside from the regularly scheduled public runs on Sundays in December, the R1/R9 Holiday Train made a special run on Saturday, 12/10/16, as part of a New York Transit Museum excursion, which picked up passengers at Second Avenue, before running to the NYTM for late-night festivities (https://web.archive.org/web/20161211045614/http://www.nytransitmuseum.org/program/subway-swing/). During this chase, we see the train arriving @ Second Ave after deadheading from 207th Street Yard, passing Broadway - Lafayette Street after picking up passengers, relaying @ Hoyt - Schermerhorn Streets into the Museum, deadheading through Utica Ave, and deadheading through 181st Street.

Amtrak HD 60fps: High Speed 125 MPH Train Action @ Princeton Junction w/ Temp Platform (8/3/16)
 
11:10
To accommodate the high speed rail project between County and HAM interlockings, track 4 has been closed for most of the summer. Therefore, the semi-permanent platform extensions have been in place @ Princeton Junction and Hamilton, which makes for some interesting moves and lots of horn. Included are the Acela 10003 Geometry Car on 2163, 670's return on her first revenue run on 85, and Veterans Unit 642 on 127. Enjoy the action =) Morning @ Edison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saY1siKq3H8 Princeton Dinky: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymxeIQ7w25s

Assorted action consisting of push-pull equipment, most leased, at Trenton Transit Center and 30th Street Station. To date, one NJT set, one Amtrak set, and two MARC sets are being used in service, with a third MARC set being prepped for service. Two out of the three MARC sets do not have cab cars, thus necessitating SEPTA to tack one of their own cab cars to the end of the consist, creating quite an amalgamation of equipment which I affectionately call AmMARCTA lol.
