F59 and Double Header P42s on Surfliner
Author: erielackawanna

Back on January 27 a friend and I went out to shoot F59PHI 458 on a northbound Surfliner, thinking it may be the last run or close to it. From what I understand, 458, the lone in service F59, is still working in California as I write this. Still, these may be my last ever shots of it. Managed to catch it twice, once in Santa Susana and thanks to my friend's driving, once again in Moorpark. We then waited in Moorpark for the next southbound which had a mix of three different paint schemes on its cars and a double-heading pair of P42s on the fast shove.

Images one and two are of A1767 at Santa Susana.

Image three is of A1767 coming out of Moorpark.

Image four is of southbound 782 racing towards the station in Moorpark.

Image five is of 782 shoving out of Van Nuys.

Advice to others - chasing Amtraks ain't easy! :-)

I guess ditchlights work as marker lights, too.

The last time I saw a pair of P42s on a surfliner. Was when 782 overshot the platform at San Juan Capistrano. About 3 weeks ago

What I love about contemporary passenger trains is their variety...

Man you must have been moving to keep up with those trains, you covered a lot of territory.  Nice photos, especially like the first one.
