Kind of surprised me too, as I forgot I even had that shot of three Kodachromes together on one train. Someone asked about that a couple of posts before this one and here is one for proof that more than two were actually in the same consist on the same train. But I am sure that it must have happened at other times too.

Seeing these great shots, reminds me once again how much I miss the SP and 70s-80s railroading in the West!

I saw this train on the Shasta Route as the train was on its way to Roseville...after dark though.
