SP&S 4068

Dad’s beloved SP&S RY was chock a block with interesting equipment.

Here we see SP&S 4068 {an Alco RS3} at the Port of Astoria, Oregon in 1975.

I tried teh Google man for a now/then view but was disappointed that he doesn’t go there.

That Pier face seems to be gone too & the Port is listed as a Cruise Terminal : https://www.portofastoria.com/General_Piers_Information.aspx#

Dad on cruises once: ” Yuk ”

Old man had a point.

Golly it’s been a while!

I have been remiss in posting so I did a random grab from the Kodak pile in the footlocker that has quite a few “little yellow boxes”.

Here is OCT ’70 someplace on the SP&S – Dad had H.O. version similar to this at one point and I can see why.
