Saw Cool little Amtrak train

Today while driving  around the Ft Lauderdale- Hollywood airport, I saw the coolest little Amtrak train, It was one B32-8 and one Auto Train rack. The rack was the surprise for me since I live about 250 south of the Sanford terminal, the -8 are used to switch at the Hialeah terminal so I seen them before hitching a ride on one silver trains. I wish I had my camera ready because it look cool. I wonder what it was doing down in Miami..
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

Yeah, Amtrak had what I believe was one of those Dash 8-32BWHs switching at Sanford, Florida two years ago when I rode the Auto Train.  Perhaps Amtrak was using the auto rack in Miami for hauling Amtrak equipment in MOW use.

That what I was thinking, some kind of equipment move  I just found it odd to see the auto rack down here. Hialeah is a big terminal for Amtrak and they to have a -8 to switch the yard and Miami Central station.
