Have you ever wanted to catch a Metrolink train running with an all Rotem consist? You’ll soon have a chance!

When can I see them?

It's good to see at least one Commuter Railroad actually encourage SAFE railfanning / photography. Too bad I'm stuck on the east coast where too many people think buffs are terrorists with cameras.... =_=. Hopefully, I can make it out to the LOSSAN area for Christmas break haha. :P
