LOS ANGELES – The long-awaited Metrolink F125 locomotives made their main line debut over the weekend on test runs over the Metrolink Pasadena Subdivision. No. 905 was spotted testing in Glendora on Saturday.

The locomotives, built by Progress Rail in Muncie, Ind., are funded through a mix of local and state funds. The F125 features include U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 4-compliant emissions compliance, AC traction systems, an extended range blend and dynamic brakes with head-end power regeneration capabilities, and advanced crash energy management technology.

Metrolink is the only commuter railroad to order the F125 to date.
