Notes on Locomotives

Note 2: This unit was originally Amtrak 396 and was purchased in 2003. It was the first of four Amtrak F40s to be worked on by Metrolink. Number 800 appears to be a spare unit and has been seen in revenue service, work train service, and pulling the Metrolink Christmas Train.

Note 3: Locomotive 861 was damaged and rebuilt after hitting a truck on a grade crossing. Locomotive 873 was involved in the major accident on 1-26-05, however the unit does not appear to be damaged. Unit 855 was involved in a major accident on 9-12-08. Unknown if this unit will ever return to service.

Note 4: These two locomotives were originally built for the Marlboro train which never happened.

Note 5: Part of a canceled VIA Rail Canada order. Locomotive 886 was involved in the major accident on 1-26-05 and has since returned to service.

Note 6: Loocomotive 901 has been leased from Sound Transit (Sounder) in Seattle Washington and arrived in September 2004. This locomotive was returned to Sounder in 2008.

Note 7: The 900s were leased from GO Transit after the 1994 Northridge earthquake. They were originally FP-7s, however by the time they were leased their prime movers had been removed and a HEP generator installed. After this conversion, the units received a new model designation: Auxiliary Power Control Unit. The locomotives were returned to GO Transit with the leased passenger cars.

Note 8: Metrolink purchased a couple SD50 locomotives from Union Pacific for use in work train service. 804 has been the only one seen in service so far. exUP 5999 has not been renumbered yet. Sometime in 2006 these units were all sold off.
