SP Where Is It ?
Author: TTM

Hi everyone, I have been going through some more slides and found 3 slides that I am not sure of the location, so I am putting out the call for help.

1. SP 8402 leads a train some place, my thoughts on 1 and 2 are in Central Valley of CA or the Willamette Valley of OR. 1976

2. SP 8941 no date.

3. SP 2954 I belive is at Colton CA in March 1978.

Thanks for looking and for your help.

Tom

One more to look at, a set of SP F's shot in March 1966.

Thanks again

Believe this is the "roundhouse" [diesel service facility] at West Colton. The track shown is where sand cars were spotted.

My guess on #1 is looking north, between Shedd & Hallawell, Oregon. The #2 photo looks like the Willamette Valley as well, possibly looking south, not far from where the #1 photo was taken.

Last one looks like near Eugene, Or.

I'll second that on the last one, maybe a bit further south, like Jasper or Dougren.
