SP 8248
Title:  SP 8248
Description:  (unknown) CA June 30 1986 -- An SD40T-2 leads an SD45T-2 on a mixed freight. Unit 8248 was built in April 1980 and stricken from the roster when it was sold to Larrys Truck and Electric in July 2003. Back when this pic was taken I thought the location was Tubre CA. Since I find no listing of such a location I was probably loopy. Im certain this photo was taken somewhere south of San Francisco and north of Bakersfield. Help me out if you can.
