I believe the title gives a clue, i.e. the "Charger" locomotives.

Charger locomotive performance with a long distance train set, in the summer heat.

Look for more testing to br performed this winter.

If they stay on schedule, it should be about the same time as the Zephyr.

I wonder what number (if any) this train has. I remember the Talgo train that went west from Chicago to La Junta early last year had a special Amtrak train number. You could bring it up on Transitdocs but it wouldn't show on the status map. Hopefully it stays close to the normal Zephyr so it's somewhat predictable.

Missed it in Utah this morning, hope someone can catch it in Colorado.

Transitdocs or any AMTRAK Status map has not shown the Test Train as it is not in regular serevice.
Am I correct here?
