Remarks & Notes 
Coast Starlight on the coast in daylight! On the afternoon of August 22, 2017, we catch the Amtrak Coast Starlight northbound through Goleta, California just outside of El Capitan State Beach Campground. An unusual triple-header of 142 (P42), 171 (P42), and 509 (B32-8WH) leads this consist on the picturesque trip up the lip of the Pacific Ocean.

What California is known for. Fires, droughts, weed, and people waving rainbow flags. Yah. Great place alright. At least the trains are nice.

The GE Genesis series are well known for being Amtrak's locomotive. With confirmation of retirement from Amtrak themselves, their time is limited. Now is your chance to catch them before the chargers arrive!
