Cruds at Oxnard....
Title:  Cruds at Oxnard....
Description:  SF Bay area switch engines tended to be ALCO's or FM's, so the sight of these nearly new SP SW1500's sitting at Oxnard was very interesting. We would later learn to despise the "cruds" since they were slowly taking over all switching on the SP from the older EMD's, ALCO'S and FM's. Little did I realize that TWENTY-FOUR years later, I would be dispatching this SP Coast Line, and the Leesdale Local with SW1500's would be making my dispatching life miserable, always wanting to run in front of the Amtraks and Metrolinks!
