A vista never to be seen again

In December 1974, SP U 33C 8685 leads a westbound freight near Caliente, CA. The SP had a rather large fleet of U33 C's. Unfortunately, they did not remain on the roster as long as comparable EMD products. 8685 has the full light package as well as the "L" shaped engineers windshield. Note the 2 clean SD 9's in the consist.
