With our UK visitor Rob at the throttle, SP 9010 makes an appearance on the Niles Canyon Railway. We had some electrical items to test and as long as Rob was here, we took the opportunity to have some fun. The 9010 is the only locomotive of its type in the world and its restoration continues at the Pacific Locomotive Association's shop in Niles Canyon. Power is being supplied by our SD9 SP 5472. We hope to someday restore the 9010 to self powered operation but for now, MU control of a trailing locomotive is the order of the day. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
