Default CalTrain Frequency Change?

Numerous web sites (including RR) show CalTrain road operations using AAR channel 47 (160.815). During a recent visit to Santa Clara, Caltrains were using AAR channel 96 (161.55) through Santa Clara. Northbound ACE and Amtrak trains were also using this channel before switching to channel 42 (160.74) after departing Santa Clara. Is Caltrain using channel 96 through to SF?

Last I heard, and I can double check this...They switched back to a Caltrain North/South operations channel setup.

CONFIRMED via an official source, a conductor friend...4747 is Caltrain North and 9696 is Caltrain South. Just have to listen to 9696 going North to see when they switch...
