SP Power - 7th Street San Francisco

Here's a closeup of assorted classic Southern Pacific power basking in the afternoon sun at the Townsend and 7th Street Diesel Facility in downtown San Francisco in 1981.
Did you do a color version of that one Herb? Every time I was down there it was fog bound but it looks like you had sun and blue sky. Still a great shot and neat line up of commute power.

Hi Greg,

Thanks! Yes, I just moved the color version up to page 1. It was a beautiful day that day. I got lucky as this was one of a very few times I shot any photos there. It may have also been the same day I made audio recordings of the commute action. Lots of great SP horns approaching King St!
