Remarks & Notes 
Metrolink's San Bernardino Line (the San Gabriel Sub) follows the El Monte Busway out of downtown LA. Here we are at the Busway's station for County USC Hospital (General Hospital). Interestingly, the Busway also starts at Los Angeles Union Station, just like the rail line. Trains do not stop at this station though (I'm standing on the walkway to the bus platforms). Metrolink #886 was delivered in Nov 2001, making it one of the very last F59PHIs ever built.

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 Metrolink, COASTER, and Caltrans (Amtrak California).
