Sacramento Siemens Locomotive, Passenger car, and Light Rail Vehicle Factory Tour

On Monday August 14, 2023, the Central Coast Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society will be sponsoring a tour of the Siemens Locomotive, Passenger car, and Light Rail Vehicle Factory in Sacramento California for members and guests. At this factory they currently (or most recently) are manufacturing Amtrak ALC-42 Charger long distance locomotives, Amtrak SC-44 Charger short distance locomotives, Brightline SCB-40 125 MPH locomotives, and Via Rail SCV-42 Charger locomotives. They also manufacture the Venture passenger cars used or will be used by Amtrak Midwest, Cascades, San Joaquins, Brightline Florida Service, Via Rail, and Ontario Northland services. In addition to mainline rail, they manufacture light rail vehicles and streetcars most recently for Seattle Sound Transit, San Francisco Muni, Minneapolis, the future Orange County Streetcar in Santa Ana, among others.

This tour will last 3 hours and will cover much of their Florin facility in South Sacramento. It will run from 10 am to 1 pm. You will have to provide your own transportation, (although carpooling will be encouraged).

Since this is a heavy rail manufacturing facility, steel toed shoes are required. Siemens will provide those shoes to use if you do not have such shoes.

Space is limited primarily due to limited parking space at the facility and limited safety shoes available at the facility. Space is expected to fill up quickly and will be closed then, but in any case will be cut off at latest by Monday July 24 to allow Siemens to make final plans for us for shoes, etc. We will charge $10 per person to help cover our insurance/administrative costs and payment will be required with sign up.

For further questions, please contact Steve Ferrari at or call him at 408-504-0112.

Final detailed information including exact times and locations, driving directions, and parking instructions will be sent prior to the tour.
