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.

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!
