I'm digging the 2 SDP-45s and the SP 5304 with red lettering.

I am wondering, what exactly is a hospital train? I know what my definition is, but in this video I am confused.

I agree with you, V. Looks like a normal SP power lash up from the late 80s-put every unit you can on it and maybe a couple of them will make it to L.A.
A hospital train should be made up of cars or engines that are being relocated to another terminal for repair or maybe to the scrapper for disposal. This train looked like it had revenue freight on it.-BMT

Even so B, when we use to refer to a hospital train, it was a train with a cut of flat cars that had been loaded with derailed equipment, not just a cut of engines headed for a deadline, bone yard or the scrap pile.

As I remember, only the first two units were being used. The others were being sent to LA for repair or other disposition. I saw this proceedure many times at W/Colton. Don't know about the cars.

There was smoke coming out of some of the Geeps and it also sounds like one of the reefer's motor was running.
Overall, an amazing and wild consist! Still further proof none of the SDP45's received a beacon (my personal research quest).

The only paint on these is what the manufacturer put on there! Great NON gratified video!

Looks like a revenue freight to me too, especially at the beginning when you see smoke coming out of one of the GP9s! Love the power set, especially the GP9s and the lone SD9!
