AMTK 51 found its way onto Sounder today leading the Second train and last train to Tacoma. The engine will be on the first train tomorrow morning then again on the 7:20 am run. Don't know if it will come off in Seattle or if it will stay on another day
It was southbound out of Auburn at 6:40am as I headed up C St. SW on my way to work in Federal Way; nice sized match for the coaches--it looked like it belonged there. Are they just borrowing the GE unit or trying it out? I think it has quite a bit more HP than the F59s.
Just being borrowed, ST only has 2 spare F59's. One F59 is out of service right now getting a new HEP unit, And im guessing they lost the other one to a failure or something. The F59 has 3000 HP and the P42 has 4250. With the P42 providing HEP it has about 3950 HP for tractive effort.
