Brightline, the future passenger rail service that will connect Fort Lauderdale to Miami and West Palm Beach, has received BrightPink, its second completed trainset. Joining BrightBlue, which was delivered in January, BrightPink arrived this week at Workshop b, Brightline’s railroad operations center in West Palm Beach. BrightPink was manufactured at the Siemens Rolling Stock facility in Sacramento, Calif.
“It is exciting to reach another important Brightline milestone as BrightPink, our second completed trainset, arrives in Florida,” said David Howard, Brightline CEO. “Many South Floridians have caught glimpses of BrightBlue undergoing testing in Palm Beach County and we look forward to having BrightPink on the test track soon, preparing for our summer launch.”
BrightPink features aisles that exceed ADA compliance standards and complimentary Wi-Fi. Each Brightline trainset is 100 percent Buy America compliant with components from more than 40 suppliers across 20 states.
Brightline plans to begin introductory express service between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale in late July, followed by initial service to Miami in late August. The company is anticipating a grand opening and official launch of the train service in September.
