Recommended Posts

Here is a corrected Sound Transit railcar list:

101-104 1999 cab

105-111 2000 cab

201-213 2000 trailer

214-215 2001 trailer

216-240 2002 trailer (note)

301-307 2003 cab

401-410 2003 trailer

Note: cab cars 112-118, trailers 219-226,229,230 sold to Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (Caltrail) same numbers before completion. 301-307, 401-410 then ordered to replace them.

For several years, much of Sounder fleet was leased out as only a very few cars were actually needed:

101-103 to Virginia Railway Express V101-V103

104 to Metrolink 6104

105 to Virginia Railway Express V105

106-108 to Metrolink 6106-6108

109-111 (used by Sounder)

(112-118) sold to Caltrain

201-209 to Virginia Railway Express V301-V309

210 to Metrolink 2210

211-212 to Virginia Railway Express V311-V312

213 to Metrolink 2213

214 to Virginia Railway Express V314

215-218 (used by Sounder)

(219-226) sold to Caltrain

227-228 to Virginia Railway Express V327-V328

(229-230) sold to Caltrain

231-232 to Metrolink 2231-2232

233-236 (used by Sounder)

237-240 to Metrolink 2237-2240

As of late 2002, Sounder only used 3 cab cars (109-111) and 8 trailers (215-218 and 233-236)! As service was increased, all were eventually brought back from lease.
