I am ticketed to take train 711 from Fresno to Stockton in two weeks. Are they using comet cars on this train or the regular California cars?

Last Friday 1/11 I saw Comets on train 710 and 713. That means that neither set could have been on 711.

But then Sunday 1/13 I took train 719 which is often Comet Cars and it was California Cars.

I rode the San Joaquin in late December, and the conductor on the single-level 710 at that time said the Comets would operate on a different train (train rotation?) 'in a few weeks', which is probably around now. So it is possible it'll be Comet cars.
