On 27 September 2017, Brightline reported that BrightRed, its fifth trainset, had been completed by Siemens and that it had commenced its journey from Sacramento to South Florida. The transcontinental journey is a milestone as it marks delivery of the final trainset for Brightline’s Phase 1 service between Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Upon arrival at Workshop b, Brightline’s 12-acre railroad operations facility in West Palm Beach, BrightRed will soon begin the testing and commissioning process. Brightline’s trains are built as integrated trainsets, comprised of two diesel-electric Charger locomotives and four stainless-steel coaches.
