Amtrak California Capitol Corridor

The Capitol Corridor is one of the busiest intercity trains operating today in America. It connects California’s current capitol, Sacramento (and as far east as Auburn on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada) and intermediate cities and counties with its predecessor, San Jose.

Under Amtrak California, the Capitol Corridor is entirely funded by the California Department of Transportation. As riders may notice, the numbers on motive power and rolling stock used on the Capitol Corridor have the prefix CDTX, indicating that they are indeed owned by CDOT. The equipment mostly consist of EMD F59PHI diesel-electric locomotives built in London, Ontario and stainless bi-level coaches slightly different from the Superliners dubbed as California Cars.
