The first Amtrak train to arrive was the Southbound Cascades #507. The train was being pulled by Amtrak F69PHI #469, built by EMD in 1998.
Bringing up the rear was Amtrak NPCU #90252. It was originally built by EMD in 1977 as Amtrak's F40PH locomotive #252, using internal components from Amtrak's EMD SDP40F #565, which had been built in 1974 and was traded back to EMD for an F40PH instead.
#252 was rebuilt in the late 1990s for use as a Non-Powered Control Unit (NPCU) with its engine, traction motors and all of its power equipment removed and the former engine compartment sealed for use as a baggage section if needed. The control cab retains its controls, but actually operates the locomotive on the other end when the train is operating in the opposite direction.
