Brightline has showcased its 135,805-square-foot train maintenance facility in Orlando ahead of the site commencing full service later this year. The 100 million USD Basecamp has been built on 62 acres south of Orlando International Airport. It has already commenced limited operations for commissioning the new Brightline trains, but will begin full 24/7 services when the operator opens its Orlando station later this year. The facility will then employ 175 skilled workers including engineers, conductors, technicians and inspectors. Brightline’s Basecamp features a truck shop where coach and locomotive bogies can be disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt. It is also equipped with a 25-foot-deep drop table that operates between the heavy maintenance track and the truck shop to swap out bogies quickly and get trains back into service. Furthermore, the site includes an 11,000-square-foot parts warehouse, a wheel true facility, two fuelling islands, an 80,000-gallon biodiesel fuel farm, and a train wash facility that can wash 4 coaches and two locomotives in 15 minutes using 75% recycled water.
