Electrics Heading East

Yesterday evening, I spotted another electric locomotive traveling east as part of the consist of Amtrak #6.

Electric Train in Fernley?

This is one of the 70 Amtrak Cities Sprinter ACS-64 locomotives ordered from Siemens to re-equip the electrified Northeast Corridor fleet. The locomotives are built by Siemens at their plant in Rancho Cordova near Sacramento and shipped east in California Zephyr consists. Despite time spent switching the locomotive into #6's consist at Sacramento, the train was running only around ten minutes late.

One thing about living here is that the scenery of trains changes every day.
