Approaching Santa Rosa

Downgraded to yard and branchline work, the glory days of leading hotshots are a faint memmory for this SSW gp60.
And they aren't very good at the local/yard work either. But an excellent shot regardless of the units suitability as a local unit.
July 2001 I think the UP switch job out of Harlingen would run once a week out to the sugar mill at Roger Lacy. They might run twice a week when the sugar cane was harvested from Sep to Nov. I think that Wed was the best chances of finding this local. Since I had to drive east from Mission, it's no wonder that I caught it running at all. ~LOL
Great Post of SSW. Is this inside the city or already coming out?
I am out here in South Korea for my last rodeo.
