25 car Amtrak on Surfline?
I heard from a friend that there was a special train with 23 amfleets, 2 private, Amtrak 507 and Amtrak 450 going southbound to San Diego. Can anybody corroborate and, if so, why the long train?

I saw a video that had a P42 leading with a P32-8 trailing. It was pulling at least 13 cars or so,one PV,and the rest Heritage Diner,Dome,and a few Horizon and Amfleets. It is the Dallas Cowboys Special.

The Dallas Cowboy's special was yesterday. Look in the heads up section and read all about it.

You are confusing 23 amfleets for 90230.

North of L.A, the consist was....

NORTH ^
F59PHI 450
Amfleets
NPCU 90230
Two PVs
B-32 507 (Leader north of L.A, removed at L.A or trailing south of L.A)

SOUTH V

Yes, thanks Nathan. I figured that out when James rectified his mistake on FB.
