CalTrain 923 MP36PH-3C

  • Romet
CalTrains first new MPI unit, 923 rests @ San Jose. These units are mainly used on faster express commuter trains called Baby Bullet. Ironically this means that they sit around the station forever waiting and waiting while the older F40PH-2s do all the slow running. During the three hours I spent @ San Jose, he along with 926 sat around not doing much, along with two AMTRAK sets.

Note the lit unit number on the nose. It later changes to the train #.
