As Amtrak's F40PH's started to age in the early 1990's, Amtrak starting looking for a new alternative to replace them. GE and EMD competed for the business and GE ultimately won with the P42DC. However, Amtrak did take a handful of F59PH's (EMDs answer to the F40PH). Since they all run in California, they are hard to find elsewhere. I was happy to capture it on this day!
