Beautiful views, time to reconnect, fun destinations – there are so many reasons to ride the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner! Here's a glimpse into what it's like onboard.
August 16th, 2014 I decided to ride Amtrak Pacific Surfliner #774 from San Juan Capistrano to San Diego to avoid heavy traffic on the 5 South. This video contains footage from both locations, and also footage shot on the train.. passing through places such as: Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Cardiff by the sea, Sorrento Valley & the Old town arrival. I sat in the 3rd car back from F59PHI #450. Unfortunately, i ended up sitting on the east side because the train was super crowded. 6:48) Train #2 - Coaster train, with F40PH #2105 arriving into the old town station. 8:05) Train 3 - (Old Town San Diego) Amtrak Pacific Surfliner #580 running 36 minutes late, with F59PHI #457 in the lead with a very nice sounding K5LA! 8:50) Train #4 - (Sassafras street) Amtrak Pacific Surfliner #591, with F59PHI #453 leading the 9 car long Delmar block train. 453 is supported by a great sounding 3rd gen K5LA. 10:19) Train #5 - (Sassafras street) Amtrak Pacific Surfliner #582 running 7 minutes late with F59PHI #462 leading the way, and great K5LA action !!! 11:12) Train #6 - (Sassafras street) BNSF freight train!!! GEVO #8279 leading the way. This video doesn't come close to giving great prospective on how LOUD the horn was !!! Train #7 - Coaster train, with F40PH #2105 once again. 13:04) Train #8 - (Old Town San Diego) Amtrak Pacific Surfliner #784 running about 20 minutes late, with F59PHI #460 leading. 14:17) Train #9 - (Old Town San Diego) my train home.. Amtrak Pacific Surfliner #595, with cabcar #6907 in the lead. 15:02) back to San Juan. 15:54) (San Juan Capistrano Train Station) BNSF Freight train, with 60+ cars.
Last update on Amtrak California set. I installed 2 Soundtraxx Soundcars! One in the cab car and another mid train. Perfect to add more sound effects and more realism. Note that I still to optimize the 2 soundcars to run as "consist". Which means that the sounds are not to my liking yet. The Soundcar decoder is an excellent product. Very easy to consist to the locomotive and highly adjustable. For the cab car I'm particular, I custom installed a full light package and custom installed enclosed speakers. I wish EMD/Caterpillar would bring them back. Sorry that I haven't included other passenger trains that run in the west coast such: Altamont, Caltrain, Coaster, Metrolink & Coast Starlight. Enjoy it.
All aboard! This week, we take a look at Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner as it runs up and down the central coast of California. Along the way, we will stop for some views of the Pacific Ocean and visit the Santa Barbara train station, built in 1905. Watch the Surfliner as it winds along the spectacular California coast and through fields full of springtime green. CoasterFan2105 is home to train videos for everyone!
