P42 Shortage in LA?
Author: Amtk509

I've noticed that over the past week or so, 14 has gone by the Dunsmuir cam. with only one P42 in the consist. The second unit has been either an F59 or B32. Are a bunch of the LA based P42's down for major repairs at the moment or have they ended up elsewhere in the system?

It's been my observation that a lot of the Amtrak West P42s (112-122) have wandered since the Coast Starlight was shut down from the slide up in Oregon.

Soon after the full Starlight route was re-opened most of the normally captive P42s returned. In mid May all were running on the Starlight except for 116 on the Grande Luxe and 118 at Beech Grove.
The trigger for the current period of wandering seems to have been the flood disruptions on the West Coast to Chicago routes.

Seen several P42s on the coast lately that haven't been here before. #s 74,79,83,96,138,204. Todays Coast Starlight had 114 & 96!

Did the 119 get repaired yet.

I'd say in my two cents, did they find the problem on what always causes 119 to crap out!
