The first three Chargers ordered by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) for its MARC (Maryland Area Regional Commuter) services have left the Siemens works in Sacramento. The locos were ordered in 2015 from an option for 225 Charger locomotives, which was included in the multi-state procurement framework launched by the states of Illinois, California, Michigan, Missouri and Washington.
