Home News Archive 2014-09-12 - [USA] Siemens to supply Charger diesels to Florida

Yesterday, Siemens did a big announcement. For the first time it will be building passenger train coaches for the US-market. For operator All Aboard Florida (AAF) the manufacturer will built diesel trains with a topspeed of 125 mph (!). AAF starts with the procurement of five sets of four single deck coaches and a locomotive at each end. Later on, they want to extend these trains to seven coaches. Five additional trains are also planned.

The locomotives used for these trains are the new Siemens Charger machines. 32 units were ordered previously by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
