Last Brightline Train Set En Route

The last train set built by Seimens USA for All Aboard Florida Brightline service has left the factory in Sacramento, California, and will be heading to West Palm Beach, Florida.

Named BrightRed, it will join BrightBlue, BrightGreen, BrightPink and BrightOrange, and begin serving the Brightline route between Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach later this year.

Brightline has five train sets but only three will be on the line at any given time. The two sets will be held on standby.

Each train set has two diesel-electric locomotives and four stainless-steel coaches. Although Brightline has said it will begin operations this year, no launch date or ticket prices have been announced.
