Two new Brightline trainsets, consisting of Siemens Chargers locomotives and Viaggio Comfort USA coaches, are soon to arrive in Florida. The two trainsets - BrightGreen and BrightOrange - are to be transported from Sacramento together. A first, as the previous two trainsets - BrightBlue and BrightPink - were delivered separately, in January and March 2017 respectively.

Of the two new trainsets, BrightGreen has been completed by Siemens. Currently, the finishing touches are being done on BrightOrange. The arrival of the two sets implicitly marks the arrival of four further Charger locomotives, raising the fleet to eight. The fifth trainset will bring the number of locomotives in the fleet to ten.
