Have you heard the news? Bachmann Trains and Train Control Systems are teaming up to deliver the Siemens SC-44 Charger locomotive - with precision detailing, unrivaled motor control, and incredibly detailed WOWSound on board.
We recently returned from a trip from the Transportation Technology Center, Inc. in Colorado where we worked directly with Siemens engineers to record some SC-44 units in residence there. We had an awesome time and got a lot of great Charger material - check out our trip recap if you're into cool behind-the-scenes train content!
Several railroads are using the SC-44 in revenue service, and many more are expected to purchase these units to replace older, less efficient locomotives in the coming years. The SC-44 has a full career ahead of it, and you can be one of the first to put them to work on your railroad as well!
Stay tuned for more information from TCS and Bachmann as a 2020 release date is set.
