May 25, 2002: First Runs of Weekend Surfliners 799 and 780
--- Between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara (Trip Report by Chris Guenzler)

A complete Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trainset heading south stopped at the Amtrak Station at the Fullerton Santa Fe Depot at about 9:45 A.M. on Wednesday morning, May 10, 2000. The trainset stopped again in Fullerton at about 4:10 P.M. on its return trip from San Diego to Los Angeles.

Apparantly, it was doing a test run on the Amtrak San Diegan route between Los Angeles and San Diego. An announcement by the Amtrak station staff indicated that passengers were not to board this train.

We took a number of photos of the train when it stopped in Fullerton both on its southbound and on its northbound journeys. The westbound Amtrak Southwest Chief arrived at the same time as the southbound Pacific Surfliner this morning and you can see that in the photos that we took of the train.
