I have watched the San Juan Capistrano Virtual Railfan Cam quite frequently the last 6 months and have never seen anything except surfliner cars

Do they still run a single Superliner coach on some of the trains?

Are you a real person? Seams like you live to complain maybe you are a child too or more like a grumpy old man who tells people to get off his lawn.

Yes, it's Car #5.  Usually forward of the Business Class car.  Sometimes it's used as a second Business Class car.

Almost all consists have an ex-Superliner car.  It's Car #5.  Usually forward of the Business Class car.  Sometimes used as a second Business Class car.

The repainted ones are the ones that CalTrans paid to have repaired. They're on a long term lease to Amtrak California.

Are the Amfleet Business Class cars better than the Surfliners?

Actually we have no Amfleet cars on the Cascades, at least not at the moment.  
All Horizon, plus the two Oregon Talgos.  I thought California had to give up those leased repaired Superliners over money.  Did they take them back?

Are the Horizons superior to the Amfleets?
