We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.

Radio Traffic on the BNSF San Bernardino SUb confirms that
the AMTK 184 Phase 4 Heritage unit is LEADING Train 4 of the 29th (Friday 7-29-11)
from Los Angeles CA.
I hope some folks along the Amtrak Southwest Chief route can see this
unique uniit leading Amtrak 4 (29th) !!

The San Bernardino DS just told this train
to PROTECT 6.32.2 rule at the LAKEVIEW AVE grade xing at the MP 39 area
of the San Bernardino Subdivision (just east of FULLERTON CA).

FYI, as of 2:30 PM today AMTK 184 is (or was) sitting on the track normally reserved for the "ready" locomotive that's usually kept at Albuquerque (just south of the station) in case a unit on the #3 or #4 goes out or if any cars (Amtrak or private) need to be switched into or out of the consist. I don't know how long it's actually been there, nor did I even know it was sitting there until today; for that matter, it may have gone back west on the #3 by now. It does make an interesting change from the "stock" P42s (or the occasional rebuilt P40) that usually get stationed here. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
