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.

HD - SoCal 2011 - Oceanside - Tons of Metrolink, Coaster and Amtrak Action!
On the 16th of June, we were staying for the night at Oceanside so tomorrow we could meet up with AMTK510. After taking a bit of a swim on the beach, I changed and headed to the station at Oceanside, a major station for Amtrak, Coaster, and Metrolink. I could only stay for about 2 hours, but I saw plenty of passenger action, meets, and new school F40PH's. In total, I saw 7 trains. Not bad for a Thursday. I'll definitely revisit this station in the future Enjoy the video! -Subscribe for more from my California trip! Train 1: As I arrived into the station, Metrolinks' 604 train is about to be turned around when Coasters' 661 train arrives in the station, resulting in a meet. Not a bad way to start off the evening. Coaster 661 Coaster F40PHM-2C 2103 Train 2: After a brief layover, the Metrolink train, now 607 departs for points north to LAUPT. SCAX Cabcar 636 SCAX F59PH 864 Train 1: The coaster leaves Oceanside heading north to the shops. Train 3: Amtraks' Surfliner #589 arrives into Oceanside. What's interesting is this one sports dual F59PHI on both ends of the trains, pretty unusual I assume, for SoCal. AMTK F59PHI 461 AMTK F59PHI 455 Train 4: At around 6:55PM, North County Transist Districts' "Sprinter" diesel rail cars arrive into Oceanside. these 2 car shuttles on rails ferry passengers to and points between Oceanside, and Escondido, 30 minutes away.... Siemens VT642 4003 Then at 7:03PM it departs East to Escondido. Train 5: Not long after the Sprinter left, another Coaster was comming into the station. Head end power was F40PHM-2C 2105. Hmm...where have I heard that before...? lol. Coaster 663 Coaster F40PHM-2C 2105 Train 6: Another Sprinter, no big deal but...looks at the colors!! Train 7: Last train of the day for me was Metrolink. Thank God they've yet to change that M-Bell, that never gets old. SCAX 850 SCAX Cabcar 626 SCAX F59PH 853





CP 5956 Leads Freight With UTA Frontrunner Passenger Car
CP Rail 5956 and DME 6200 pull a long freight. At the end of the train is a Utah Transit Authority Frontrunner passenger car being shipped out there for commuter service. Filmed in Davenport, IA January 21st, 2010. Info on Frontrunner http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FrontRunner

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. -----------------------Highlights are: 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 Metro-blanks.) 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!

Riding COASTER North to Encinitas
I took the Coaster 645 North to Encinitas to get away from those evil Amtrak cops. (Their new photo and video policy is a lie!) Here's my review of the San Diego COASTER: Excellent service, Friendly crews Fast, reliable service Great cleanliness, (REALLY clean windows!) The trains always make it on time Finally, very well maintained interior The San Diego Coaster is the way to go! FAR better than Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner.





Railfanning San Clemente, Ca - Amtrak & Metrolink Trains, 7/13/11
There are a lot of scenic areas along the Surfline. This stretch of rail passes by many beaches, bluffs, and cool scenic areas along Southern California's coastline. San Clemente is one of these cool scenic spots to watch some trains go by!! I caught 8 trains passing through, most of them being Amtrak Surfliners. Here's the train info: Watch in HD!! Train #1...F59PHI #464 with its newer hybrid K5LA horn, passes by leading Amtrak #572. Train #2...Amtrak #775 passes through the San Clemente Pier station with Cabcar #6907 leading. Only a select few Amtrak trains stop here. Train #3...Amtrak #774 passes through one of the many pedestrian crossings along San Clemente. Train #4...Amtrak #579 cruises by with an awful K5LA on Cabcar #6952. Train #5...Metrolink #641 passes by with an all Hyundai Rotem car set. Train #6...Amtrak #578 slowly cruises by San Clemente with F59PHI #451 leading. Train #7...Cabcar #626 leads Metrolink Train #609 alongside the pedestrian dirt path. Train #8...Amtrak #583 makes its way through San Clemente. Cabcar #6953 leads the train past Calafia State Beach. Thanks for Watching!! AmtrakCal462





Union Pacific Breathes Life into The Biggest Steam Locomotive Ever Built
For the first time in over fifty years, the Big Boy #4014 is on the move again. Here she is being towed through Ontario, California's Amtrak Station, on her way to Colton, and ultimately Wyoming to be restored to her former glory. This video is raw due to my video editor being difficult. Shot on a Sony NEX-3.
