Remarks & Notes 
Colorado-Bound

Four-day-old Siemens SC-44 diesel-electric passenger locomotives WDTX 1402 and 1403 were found in Amtrak’s Redondo Junction engine facility in downtown Los Angeles on April 2, 2017. These two locomotives, having not yet been accepted by their owner, are traveling to the Association of American Railroads’ (AAR) test facility in Colorado using Siemens' reporting mark SIIX. These two SC-44 “Charger” locomotives will be accompanied on Amtrak #4, the Southwest Chief, by a pair of Amtrak P42DCs (4 and 174), meaning #4 will have an impressive amount of power on the head-end (four P42s and the two dead-heading SC-44s).

Tier IV locomotives are the safest, cleanest, and most fuel efficient locomotives on the rails today. Unfortunately, most of them are ugly and are as quiet as an ACS-64.
