Talgo ScrapTrain Heads Up PNW & CA
Author: SLORailfanning

Amtrak Cascades Series 6 Talgo's are being scrapped. There will be two sets of these Series 6 Railcars coming down this Saturday lead by Dash-8 #506. It appears to be roughly following the timetable for #11. It will follow 11's route down the coast

ETD Seattle: 08:35 AM Tomorrow
ETA Eugene: 4:07 PM Tomorrow
ETA Sacromento: 05:30 AM 2/27/21
ETA SLO: 2:07 PM on 2/27/21
ETA LA: 7:11 PM on 2/27/21

All times are subject to change. I anticipate them following the normal crew changes

It seems odd that they are going from Seattle to the LA area to be scrapped. I would think scrap yards in the PNW could bid higher since they would have lower transportation costs (not to mention local mini-mills).

When is the Port Defiance Bypass reopening? I saw a few weeks ago they were testing.

They are being scrapped in Anaheim at CRS

I would say it's highly unlikely they will be scapped right away.  Most likely held for resale, and maybe eventully scrapped, but not right away.  Same for the ones sold at Beech Grove, which have been acquired by the same parties.

I'm going to assume the 506 is Amtrak 506/  Ate the type 6 cars the older sets, not the newer Fuglies?

TIA

From my understanding as of tonight the Pepsi Can 506 is leading with the two series 6 Talgo's.

There are reports up here that Louisiana is interested in the Series 6s for New Orleans-Mobile and possibly New Orleans-Baton Rouge service, especially since the FRA has apparently rejected the NTSB's condemnations of the 6s.  Also, latest word on the bypass is that service will likely start sometime in July.

AMTK 204 and 179 will be powering the train.

A friend heard they cancelled the run account PTC issues.

I bet amtrak is going to tack this set onto the back of tomorrow's 11 in seattle and maybe run the starlate with 3 locos.

They can't do that supposedly due to the different braking characteristics which is why you often see the Talgo moves go solo.

There would be issues with the length and blocking crossings in Oakland if they did that.  Same reason PVs are limited to 4 on the Starlight when it runs at full length.
