Amtrak and Illinois Dept. of Transportation had an unveiling of the Charger locomotives at in the yard at West Quincy, MO. using the Carl Sandburg train equipment.

Overall, not a bad article - for the Whig.

 

It touted positive train control without mentioning the engine is only half, maybe less, of the equation.

 

It neglected to the mention the most important feature, the freeing up of engines for LD service, hopefully reducing the dead in the water episodes.
