Sounder cars on Amtrak
Author: sp219

...soon

I spotted a couple of Sounder cars at Amtraks 8th street yard about an hour ago. I would assume these are the ones Metrolink leased and are ready to go back to Sound Transit. The Metrolink decals have been removed. I don't know when they will be leaving.

The Metrolink consist that normally had the Sounder cars had four Metrolink coaches and an ACE cab car yesterday in San Bernanrdino.

Looks like part of the Metrolink "rainbow" is gone.

Aww, I didn't ever get my picture of the train when it was half and half, was wandering around about a week ago with three Metrolink coaches, two Sounder Coaches and a Sounder Cab Car.

I'm assuming the last of the leased Sounder coaches have to be back in Seattle by the first of the year.

My favorite lucky image of the Sounder Set. January 08 near Haven Ave. in Rancho Cucamonga.

Everyone seems to love our cars. We are getting even better, more comfortable seating in the cars. These cars are scheduled to be converted to the new seats shortly after they arrive. Looking forward to that!

I would be curious as to how many commuter lines have purchased the Bombardier (VIA) cars!

And the Altamont Commuter Express (the secret train no one knows about) from Stockton to San Jose.

Secret Altamont train? I am living in New Jersey and last summer I rode that train from Stockton to San Jose. I noticed that there were many other passengers on board who seemed to know about that service.

Is New Mexico's RailRunner a Bombardier customer?

Looked like part or all of Sounder cars went north from LA yesterday (12-29). Starlight consist was still in the wash rack when we went by on Metrolink. Couldn't tell how many were on the head end.
