Charger #1402 is the 819 of the Chargers; it was scrapped recently.

Maybe cause the 601 and 627 are owned outright by Amtrak and the 1402 was owned by ODOT/WSDOT, so they had alot of say with Siemens on what they wanted t they wanted to do. Just an educated guess?

To me, the 1402 looked decent post-accident considering the thing fell down a 20ft embankment, didn't notice too much frame damage if any at all

That entire thing was shot. The body is the frame, so in that kind of a mess its all pretty much done. The 601 and 627 are both stored in different locations now which leads me to believe theres intentions to do different things with one and the other. One is stored in a line with stuff thats set to be sold/scrapped and the other is set in the "I dont care zone" where the aem=7s went and had all of their horns and numberboards stolen.

Without prejudice towards the admins, does this topic deserve to be stickied/pinned now that it's almost a year ago and there's no activity?

Feel free to delete after you reconsider it's importance... ;)
