Extra SP 6818 West at Redlands, CA

January 23, 2011

I haven’t posted anything SP-related recently. My bad. I don’t have an excuse.  I won’t let it happen again.

To demonstrate my sincere desire to make things right with SP fans (myself included):

This shot was taken near the beginning of time when leased locomotives became commonplace on the Southern Pacific due to SP’s ongoing motive power shortages.

The two trailing motors are P&L 3047 and NHL 6686,  an ex-MP SD40 and ex-SLSF/BN SD45, respectively.

PS – This photo was taken the same day as a shot of ATSF 5808, which I posted on Feb. 11, 2010.
