F59PHI in Amtrak Pacific Northwest Color Scheme
The F59PHI in the Amtrak Pacific Northwest Color Scheme of deep green
markings and dark brown skirts and windshield trim arrived at the
Redondo Roundhouse in Los Angeles a few days ago. They are being used
on the Amtrak San Diegan route for a few days to shake out any problems.
Since F59PHI locomotives are being used on almost all of the San Diegan
trains already, the engineers on this route have already been trained and
acquired some experience with these new locomotives. In the above photo,
an F59PHI in the Pacific Northwest Green Color Scheme is shown in the
foreground and an F59PHI in the Amtrak West / San Diegan Blue Color
Scheme is shown in the background.
