Fire, Water and the Pacific Surfliner. Hurrying past the ever growing the Thomas Fire, Amtrak 769 passes through Seacliff as it heads north for its next station stop of Carpinteria. Later that night, the fire would jump US 101 and race all the way down to the tracks - closing the coast line to rail traffic for most of December 7.
Some of the best passenger locomotives that EMD ever made (aside from the F40PH). With all Amtrak F59s gone from the Surfline, the only place that they can be seen is with Caltrans (Amtrak California).
