Metrolink 883 with Two Horns and UTA Frontrunner car

I just got of this Metrolink train from Oceanside. During the ride, I noticed that the train was using a very nice K5LA mixed with P2 horn. With plenty of waving, jumping, and dancing, I got the engineer to give YouTube a sample of it's stellar K5LA. (You're WELCOME!) If you look close, you can see that this is also Metrolink's blankest locomotive. (Note the white paint around the plow.) Enjoy the video.

Metrolink and Amtrak Train Action at LA Union Station; 3/30/2013
I've had this video ready for upload for about 2 weeks and couldn't find any free time to upload this video, but now here it is! I was invited to join FanofThePadres411 and 798Amtrak at LA Union Station for a day of Amtrak and Metrolink trains. I got there for the departure of the Coast Starlight and stayed until the departure of Amtrak train numbers 777 and 580 (FanofhePadres411 left on this train) I also added 2 clips at the beginning and end of the video of the Coast Starlight in each direction but both are different days: 1st clip is from March 19, 2013 of Amtrak 14 through Glendale with a Cascades NPCU in the consist, 90252. The 2nd clip is from the same day I was at LA Union Station on Amtrak 11 on the last day of detour coming down the Valley Sub through Sylmar station. It was the only day I was able to see the detoured Coast "Valley" Starlight since I'm busy during the week and unable to see all of the detoured trains. Sorry for the shaking on the last clip too, too much wind was hitting me since the train passed me so fast and was only protected by just a fence. Enjoy the video!

Driving A Train: PTC Equipped Metrolink Rotem Cab Car Simulator
On the day of March 21, 2014, I had the honor of operating Metrolink's Positive Train Control simulator engineers use to train on before they operate on the real rails. I had the opportunity to do this because I won Metrolink's Holiday contest. If you haven't followed me yet on Instagram, be sure to do so! Also, a BIG thanks to Mike and Hutch for helping me operate this simulator. And also to Yena, who made this whole experience possible!

PVC Nathan M5 train horn vs Nathan Airchime K5LLA decibel test
I am testing the decibel levels of a set of 12v GM Cadillac horns, my PVC Nathan M5 homemade train horns, and my Nathan Airchime K5LLA {real train horns}. I was quite surprised by the results. Although the decibel reading was very close between the PVC horns and the K5's, a 3 decibel difference between the two means that the K5's will sound twice as loud as the PVC horns to the human ear. None the less the PVC horns are deafening loud.

Metrolink F59PHI 876 with Impressive K5LA
After riding the Executive special with a set of Hyundai Rotem CEM cars to Santa Ana for the whistle stop debut, it departed Northbound so I decided to take Southbound train 684 back home. To my great pleasure, it was using the original horn which was a great way to wrap up the day. Enjoy!
