One of VIA Rail's new Charger locomotives is at the Montreal Maintenance Centre, the day after an entire Charger trainset arrived directly from Siemens' factory in California, after an expedited and dedicated move across the continent (running as CN P698 when on CN rails).

  1. Well, they look fast… I wonder how much protection there is for the crew in the event of a grade crossing accident?

  2. There’s a big empty void in the middle of the engine you can run to…. if it’s not full of snow in the winter :)

  3. Probably better collision protection than an LRC
