when they came through michigan, the design engineer (not the guy running the engine) said theyre still only in evaluation. there was no plan "at this time" to purchase these new engines...

Caltrans has purchased 22 of them. Amtrak operates the corridor trains here but the equipment is owned by the state. Caltrans funds three intercity rail routes in the US:
the Pacific Surfliner: San Luis Obispo – San Diego
the Capitol Corridor: Auburn to San Jose
the San Joaquin: Oakland/Sacramento – Bakersfield

It's really nice to see a proper train now and again.

This is not a great location to shoot from, but there really is no GREAT location in or near my town to shoot trains that I am aware of.

This train was just sitting when I spotted it.
