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 F59PHI 884 leading SCAX Train 285 with a K5LA
I got a heads up that A Metrolink was on its way up the Antelope Valley Line using its K5LA so I headed out to take video of it. I just barely caught it at Lang Station Road. After meeting it at Lang Station Road, I got ahead of it and got it at the Robbins Nest Campground crossing, a location I haven't been to in years and this crossing thankfully is exactly how it was the last time I was here. Then I got a few videos alongside F59PHI 884 passing by train 226 which is the last train to Los Angeles and crossing over one of Acton's private railroad crossings, shortly after, the Bootlegger Canyon Road crossing, and then I paced it across the Thousand Trails Crossing. I made a good effort to beat it to the Crown Valley crossing before the signals started but to no avail, that crossing always starts really early. I then proceeded to Sierra Highway South to catch it crossing there and Barrel Springs Road and pace it to Ave. S. Finally, since it is the express and it terminates in Palmdale, it stays parked at the station for a few extra minutes and allowed me to get video of it at Ave P. Please comment on if you like all the videos of this chase compiled together or if you like them as separate videos, I'm trying something new. As always, thanks MrUp8444 for the heads up.

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!
