Chasing Amtrak #591 in San Diego with F59phi #457 leading a long Surfliner Train to Los Angeles, F59phi #462 is the end unit. Rare catch to have the two best Surfliner F59's together on one train!
Train #1...F59phi #457 and three additional surfliner cars switch from track 2 to track 3 to form a long Amtrak #591, Awesome horn action from a great sounding K5LA!!
Train #2...Coach car leading the backup across Beech St.
Train #3...Departing 10 minutes late, F59phi #457 leads a slow moving #591 out of San Diego, great horn!!!
Train #4...Amtrak #591 departs Old Town. #591 had to wait for #582 to pass before getting the clear.
Train #5...Amtrak #591 finally moving fast, roars through Sorrento Valley with more great K5LA action
Thanks for watching!

Contract Brings Jobs to Three States and New Technology to the Northeast Corridor to Better Serve Passengers on the Busiest Rail Route in the Country
SACRAMENTO, Oct. 29, 2010 — Siemens today announced that it has been awarded a $466 million contract to build 70 electric locomotives for Amtrak’s Northeast and Keystone Corridor lines as part of Amtrak’s landmark fleet rejuvenation initiative. The contract will require an additional 250 people to build the locomotives, with 200 in Sacramento, Calif. and 50 collectively in Norwood, Ohio and Alpharetta, Ga.
The locomotives will be built at Siemens’ existing light rail manufacturing facility in Sacramento, Calif. The plant, which has been in operation for 26 years, is powered up to 80 percent by two megawatts of solar energy and employs 750 people. All main components of the new locomotive will be produced in Siemens plants in the United States – including the motors in Alpharetta and propulsion containers in Norcross, Ga. The first locomotives will be delivered in 2013.
“As the global leader in rail innovation, we are thrilled that Amtrak has selected our proven locomotive technology and that this project will create 250 new green manufacturing jobs in the United States,” said Daryl Dulaney, president and CEO, Siemens Industry, Inc. “These locomotives will be built in America using renewable energy and provide cleaner, more efficient movement of people on the most heavily traveled rail route in the country.”
“Amtrak is a critical transportation provider in the Northeast and modern locomotives are essential to meet the service reliability expectations of our passengers and for us to handle the growing ridership demand in the coming years,” said President and CEO Joseph Boardman.
Siemens is already a successful producer of American light rail trains with every third light rail vehicle in the United States being a Siemens train. The new Amtrak Cities Sprinter (ACS64) is based on Siemens latest iteration of the proven EuroSprinter electric locomotive. Over 1,600 units are in operation worldwide, and this latest version will be customized to meet the strenuous environment of the Northeast Corridor at a sustained speed of 125 mph.
