Amtrak's southbound Central Coast San Diegan departs at 6:20am from San Luis Obispo with an F40 at both ends. The Central Coast San Diegans still use Amfleet and Horizon equipment, and two full-length dome cars are due to arrive soon. When Amtrak West's orders for new double-decker intercity cars (built by GEC Alstom) and EMD F59PHI's are completed, the equipment in this photo will be used elsewhere.
