Per http://www.on-track-on-line.com/amtk-ro ... ml#Horizon
There are 66 all seat coaches left, 4 all table cars left which California leases 3 for their Comet IIA trains in the valley, and 10 club-dinettes with 14 recliner seats and 32 table seats left. I assume some of these are running with the cascade trains replacing wrecked or retired sets. As new Siemens Venture cars come online, I expect more and more Horizons will become available to move south.
Didn’t Amtrak order some new Venture cars recently? Maybe they will move here first to get this train off to a great start with brand new rolling stock? Then maybe Amtrak will want them running on their premiere NEC first.
