Then you have the connections to substations and power lines. Somehow missed it .That breakdown is not in that progress report. It's likely in some detailed design document somewhere. Some document here: Electrification Document Library | Caltrain
Is there any figure on what the MAX apeed the CAT is being built for?. Thinking about Ca HSRI'd have to look in the design documents for that.
The alignment includes high-speed rail stations in San Francisco, Millbrae, and San Jose; construction of a light maintenance facility (LMF) on the east side of the Caltrain corridor in Brisbane; and improvements for safety and speed to allow for operations at a maximum speed of 110mph.I don't know how much of that is now being built into the SF - SJ corridor.
Caltrain begins testing of first electric trains
The electric trains will begin service in fall 2024 and will feature on board displays with digital trip information, increased storage capacities, Wi-Fi and power outlets at every seat.
Caltrain has begun testing its electric trains. Initial tests will be conducted between Santa Clara and College Park Stations on the Santa Clara Drill Track. Test runs will expand to the main track, between San Antonio and San Jose Diridon stations this summer.
