    This video of the first Wolverine with Chargers was posted by Michigan Central Lines on Saturday. It shows Amtrak #355 at Ann Arbor with IDTX 4612 up front and IDTX 4630 on the rear.



    Huron & Eastern Railfan posted this video on Sunday of Amtrak #364 at Durand led by IDTX 4614.

    They're nice-looking units. I can't help hoping VIA backtracks on the yellow and black to go with something more aesthetically pleasing.

    I think Amtrak would be doing themselves a disservice by basing their Chargers on the VIA Chargers...I like the MI ones, modern, sleek, and functional. The VIA ones look weird.

    Frankly I also wish that Amtrak creates a livery similar to that of the Midwest version but under the "Amtrak America" brand like the new Viewliners. Bit of joke that it came to be on the new cars but is apparently not being looked at for the new power...not having a unified brand makes the company look disorganized.
