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.

Driving A Train: Metrolink Rotem Cab Car w/ PTC
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! In this video, I am operating the simulator of the Rotem
cab car. Before this, I had operated the MP36PH-3C locomotive for an hour!
Also, a BIG thanks to Mike and Hutch for helping me operate this simulator.
And also to Yena, who made this whole experience possible!

Twenty trains rolling through Heroes Park (Surprise Ending)
My friend blueydsniper came all the way from Coranado in San Diego to visit
me in Heroes Park and here's the video of what we saw there. Pretty good
day. I let him use my tripod, so that's why there some hand held shots.
1. A forgetful crew running a Metrolink train going North on the IEOC left
the headlights shining bright on the trailing cab car.
The BNSF O-LACSDG (Officer Special from Los Angeles to San Diego.)
3. Metrolink F59PHI 883, (with the blankest paint scheme of all SCAX Phase
III locomotives. The paint above the plow is white, unlike other
4. A Pacific Surfliner with a baggage car; (door open,) six Amfleets, two
Horizons, and two F59PHI locomotives.
I recently repaired my bicycle air horns, so I included some footage of it
as well. Enjoy the video!
Amtrak, BNSF, and Metrolink Trains in Santa Fe Springs, CA on 11/28/12
Here is some early morning train action in Santa Fe Springs on a gloomy,
cold November day. I was here from 7:30 to 8:45am, and caught a good amount
of trains! These tracks get a real high volume of trains per day, which is
the main reason I keep coming back to this spot! The 2 grade crossings
within about 200 feet from each other also is a huge bonus! ;-)
9 trains are featured in this video, mostly Amtrak and BNSF. I saw about 7
or 8 Metrolink trains too, but only decided to film a few of them.
Watch in HD!
Train #1...A Metrolink train heads toward Los Angeles.
Train #2...Amtrak #564 heads south at around 7:40am, led by F59PHI #459.
Train #3...Another Metrolink train en route to LA.
Train #4...A large westbound BNSF Z-train passes by with ES44DC #7801
Train #5...A large eastbound BNSF Z-train heads through Santa Fe Springs.
Train #6...A rather short BNSF Intermodal train rolls by, led by ES44DC
#7873. Pretty good speed on this freight!
Train #7...The first northbound Surfliner of the day, Amtrak #763, passes
through. Cabcar #6953 leads with F59PHI #453 trailing.
Train #8...Yet another westbound BNSF Z-train goes by. GEVO #7424 leads.
Train #9...Amtrak #566 heads toward the next stop of Fullerton. Nice K5LA
on AMTK 455! There were lots of construction crews working on the rails
this morning, hence the extra horn blasts by the engineer.
Thanks for Watching!
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.
