SP 1207
Title:  SP 1207
Description:  Sometimes what's in the background can be as interesting as the subject. In this case a "Black Widow" GP9 adds some "color" to an otherwise plain old side view of SP 1207.

Sep 1977 "North Hollywood Sabatoge" vicitm in the Bone Yard
Title:  Sep 1977 "North Hollywood Sabatoge" vicitm in the Bone Yard
Description:  The Bull Ring's sad lines of locos sit ready for the torch. While most are Alcos, early U-Boats and a DD35, there is also a wrecked Crud, #2463, the victim of foul play by two teenage boys a year earlier, who had sabatoged the unit, purposely derailing it and two cars on the Burbank Branch on September 19, 1977. Four trainmen were injured in the incident, two seriously. The SW1500 did not run again. In fact, as far as I know, no engine in this image ever did run again after I took this shot.
