  1. The first car in each series does. Look up the specific numbers I posted and you’ll see.
  2. $35 according to Kato‘s website.
  3. I was really hoping that Kato would do a special edition Viewliner 2 four-pack with the 61000, 62500, 68000 and 69000 all with the pointless arrow logo.
  4. For those of us who enjoy Amtrak in N-scale, Kato just announced that their Viewliner 2 baggage cars will be arriving in June. http://katousa.com/N/Amfleet/index.html

    There appear to be 6 Pacific Surfliner Chargers in LA now.

    Another F59PHI left on the Southwest Chief last night, likely going to its new home in Chicago. Any updates on when the new Pacific Surfliner Chargers will enter service?
  8. #4 struck a trespasser between LA & Fullerton last night.
  9. Don't you mean that you are on #3? La Junta to Albuquerque is 'westbound', so #3, not #4..... You are correct. I am desperately lacking in sleep as well. It doesn’t help that most of the consist numbers on this train still read 04XX. This train was pretty late into Chicago on Thursday and the parties responsible did a poor job of prepping this train for its next run.
  10. I am on #4 right now sitting in La Junta, CO. We are waiting for the crew that takes us to Albuquerque to be rested. They just announced that this train will run through to Albuquerque. There will NOT be a bus bridge today.
  11. I spotted the 8400 in Chicago on the back of a train arriving from Carbondale. There were old baggage cars separating the 8400 from the Horizon Fleet coaches, so it’s safe to assume it was not in service.

    There are some rules for bidding on government contracts that allows government agencies to piggyback on other orders to get a more competitive price. Since there are currently unused options on the Siemens contract, other agencies like North County Transit District that operate Coaster can use those options instead of going out to bid on their own.
  13. Finally! They should have been finished with all the diners by now! I think you mean “sleeping car lounges”. [emoji6]

    If only we had more equitable funding for rail transportation like we do for highways and airports we probably never would have been in this mess.
