SP 2664

Also 298 and 475

Southern Pacific engine and baggage car in San Jose by water tower.
SW 1500 SP 2664

I really like this undated print. I am sure its about 1970-1971 in San Jose (water tower is the tip off).

At the center is SW1500 2664 looking pretty sharp doing the usual yard work of shunting SP Commuter equipment at the South end of the line.

The Economy Baggage Car 298 is a M510 type similar to this.

SP 475 peeking at right is marked “caboose” and has a sad looking color photo here.

My favorite part is the ground man with teh wide brimmed hat :

Man with hat on train steps

did he (or any of us) ever think we would be able to share this moment at work about 50 years later with the entire world?
