Over the past months, various new developments concerning Siemens Charger diesel trains were recorded. We have made an overview about the most important ones:
Bightline train reaches Miami for the first time
AAF / Brightline is working on expanding its railway services into Miami. In January the Brightline services were introduced connecting West Palm Beach with Fort Lauderdale. The next step is to open West Palm Beach – Miami. Brightline has now published a video of a train entering the Miami station which is nearing completion:
Spotted! Brightline has arrived in the 305! Have you seen our trains on the Miami tracks? It won’t be long before we settle into our newest home in South Florida.
