Brightline expects two new Siemens trains

Siemens will deliver the third and fourth trainsets for Brightline, the new privately funded express inter-city passenger rail service in Florida.
“Two Brightline trainsets traveling 4900 km from California to Florida represent innovation in transport and U.S. manufacturing at its finest. Our Florida team looks forward to welcoming BrightGreen and BrightOrange to their new home as we continue with preparations to launch our service this summer,” said Dave Howard, CEO of Brightline.
BrightGreen and BrightOrange will join Brightline’s other two trains, BrightBlue and BrightPink, at Workshop b, the 12-acre rail operations facility in West Palm Beach that serves to maintain, clean and store Brightline’s trains. Once service begins, Workshop b will serve as the on-duty location for train crews. The trains are expected to arrive at Workshop b late next week. The fifth and final trainset, BrightRed, is being completed at Siemens and is expected to ship in mid-June.
Brightline is the new express inter-city passenger rail service connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, with future service to Orlando. Introductory express service is scheduled to begin between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale in late July, with initial service to Miami added in late August. The company is anticipating a grand opening and official launch of the full service in September.
