Home Siemens Charger [US] Siemens out-shops IDOT Chargers 4632 and 4633

Siemens USA has completed the final 2 Charger locomotives of the 33 ordered by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). On 15 November 2017, locos 4632 and 4633 were picked up at Siemens' Sacramento plant together with loco 4602.

By early-October, conditional and final acceptance of 28 out of the 33 Chargers had been signed by Siemens and IDOT. Several weeks earlier, on 27 July 2017, revenue services with the IDOT locomotives officially commenced, albeit with the locos operating in trailing position for the time being.
