In January of 2006 I retired from Amtrak after a 35 year railroad career as a locomotive engineer. I finished my career running CalTrain commuter trains as Amtrak was the contract operator. My last run was on a EMD-F40PH locomotive built by Morrison-Knudsen and Motive Power. Running back to San Francisco from Tamien station I ran from the 4024 Cab-Car, a bi-level commuter coach built by Nippon Sharyo. These are shots I took of the equipment on that last trip.
