So they should be similar to those now exclusively used on the Metra Electric service in the Chicago area?

Not even remotely close.

 

It looks like the Caltrain equipment will be an entirely new class of vehicle. One that starts out as a pretty standard European railcar design but has been modified to meet many-to-most of the FRA crashworthiness regulations - but with enough additional technology on the railway around them to allow them to run in some sort of "mixed traffic" scenario.

 

I for one am intrigued to see how it all works out. Or if it doesn't.

Is that real? Or Photoshop? It's amazing that they get another life.
