SD70M 4845 leads a Northbound baretable train past a water spout near the North switch at Wicopee. The water spout and nearby tower still had water flowing through them, so it appears that the water spout is still usable.
A Union Pacific manifest heads northbound on the Coast Line at San Lucas, California in April of 2002. The fleet of UP SD70M's have just supplanted the last of the SP power. Gone are the days of SP locomotives.
SP 9817 leads a northbound intermodal at Sargent, California in June of 2000. What I wouldn't give for a time machine right now. UP just eliminated through freights on the Coast Line, and has plugged the sidings with stored cars.
