Siemens ALC-42 Charger - AMTRAK® #311 - Phase VII

Based on the highly successful SC-44 Charger, the ALC-42 displays a range of specific features for cross-country service on America's most scenic and storied routes, including a unique nose design and cab door configuration. Entering service in 2022, the ALC-42 can be found leading long-distance trains across the United States, from the mountains of the west to the forests and farmland of the east. Bachmann's Charger models have been developed in collaboration with Siemens Mobility, using original design documentation and prototype field recordings for maximum realism.
