Electric trains are becoming more important to the smooth running of the CTS Tours railroad operating system and the functioning of the CTS Tour Hubs (especially Oceanside, Fullerton & Santa Monica). The train’s construction and beautiful design provides strength and safety including monitoring the train’s safe passage and making adjustments when necessary during the train’s route ~ CTS, Transportation Commissioner

CTS electric trains generate approximately 90% less exhaust and 50% less noise than the equivalent diesel powered train.  The train’s state of the art battery operated electrical technology & diesel backup provide reliability, speed, and safety.
