F59PHI Locomotive #457 just arrived this morning

It came in on the westbound Southwest Chief. Current status: #450, #451, #453, #454, and #458 are now all in service on the Amtrak San Diegans. #452 is still at the factory with computer problems. The other F59PHIs are also reported to have computer problems, but are in service anyway. My guess is once they find a solution to the computer problem with #452, they will probably apply it to the other F59PHIs. For more information, see www.trainweb.com/locomotives/f59phi.html

Full-length dome car back on the Amtrak San Diegans

The full-length dome car went back into service on the Amtrak San Diegans today and was seen going northbound through Fullerton on Train #577 at 12:36 PM. This train operates between San Diegan and Los Angeles. It is very likely that this dome car will also be seen on southbound Train #578 leaving Los Angeles at 1:55 PM and northbound Train #585 out of San Diego at 5:30 PM. This dome car was probably also on Train #568 southbound out of Los Angeles this morning at 6:10 AM. For further information, see: www.trainweb.com/accommod/domecar.html

F59PHI Locomotives #453 & #454 Now In Service on Amtrak San Diegans


F59PHI #453 first spotted in active service on southbound Amtrak San Diegans Train #572 on Tuesday, September 1, 1998 at 9:02 AM going through Fullerton, California. F59PHI #454 first spotted in active service on northbound Amtrak San Diegan Train #575 on Tuesday, September 1, 1998 at 11:45 AM going through Fullerton, California. This means that F59PHI #454 was probably on southbound Amtrak San Diegan Train #568 out of Los Angeles at 6:10 AM. As reported below, #453 was delivered into Los Angeles on Saturday, Aug 29, 1998 via the Amtrak Southwest Chief. I do not know when F59PHI #454 was delivered. Possibly on Sunday, August 30, 1998 or Monday, August 31, 1998. I still have no knowledge of the location of F59PHI #452 other than it has not yet appeared in the Los Angeles area.

F59PHI Locomotive #453 Arrives in Los Angeles


F59PHI #453 arrived on eastbound Amtrak Southwest Chief #3 on Saturday morning, August 29, 1998. Train #3 had 4 Genesis engines at its head end and the F59PHI #453 was behind these 4 engines. This is the third F59PHI delivered to Amtrak West. #450 and #451 are already in very active use on the Amtrak San Diegans. I don't know the present location of the locomotive with the missing number, #452, but I am pretty sure it has not been delivered to southern California at this time.
