Southern Pacific 3026 TRAIN MASTER
Train Master

Certainly in San Jose again. The Train Master was the SF Peninsula Commuter power for many years.

I Googled a bit for this data that shows only 14 units for Southern Pacific.

A bit of a rare one then.

Trains in front of a brick building
Baker & Hamilton June 1977

Strange coincidence to share today.

My Dad or brother Fred IV, had marked this slide “Briggsmore Ave Modesto”. I searched with the Google machine and didn’t locate any signs of rails currently on Briggsmore Ave in Modesto.

The next step was to look at the building signage: ” BAKER & HAMILTON SINCE 1849 ” and Wiki popped up : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baker_and_Hamilton_Building

After looking over that and Google man walking around and comparing the features I decided that the slide was indeed marked wrong.

The strange coincidence comes in with my wife, Dana, who temped in this same building when it housed Macromedia, now owned by Adobe. Well, Adobe owns the building and Dana works for Adobe now.

These GP9s and GP9R are ( I think ) tied up for the Peninsula Commuter here at what is known as 7th & Townsend in San Francisco.
