First look at electrified Caltrain trains

Just yesterday thousands of train enthusiasts got a sneak peak at Caltrain's upcoming electric fleet at Diridon Station.

75% of Caltrain's diesel trains will be replaced with brand new emission-free electric trains. These also have upgraded features like digital displays with real-time trip info, free Wifi, power at every seat, and two bike cars per train that can fit up to 72 bikes. Each train will have seven two-story cars.

Work on this project started in 2017 and the electric trains should be fully operational sometime next year.
