Diesel-electric Charger locomotive on test

Siemens has started testing its hybrid Charger locomotive at the Transportation Technology Center in Pueblo, Colorado.
...(yada yada environmental BS :wink: )
The Charger locomotive will become a common sight over the coming years, with transport authorities in Illinois, California, Washington, Michigan, Missouri and Maryland all placing orders.
...(yada yada more enviro stuff)
Charger locomotives will also be used as traction for Florida’s new Brightline passenger rail service. The first of these will be delivered later this year, ahead of the start of passenger service next summer.
Next stop, Willoughby
