Attn: Oxnard Ca. area SP fans
Author: pdt

Was riding 798 today from slo to lax...
Pulled into OXR just as the Leesdale switcher
was backing his train into the yard...

Power was 3 SP SD-40M's, with north facing
unit unpatched SP8643. Other 2 were 2668 (patched)
and 2746 (patched) All units had full SP lettering
on long hood. Also, Oxnard switcher power was an
up-patched SP unit facing north, and UP unit facing south,

If anyone's in the area tomorrow morning, you may be able
to get pix of 2 unpatched SP units side-by-side in the yard.

If anyone gets photos, pls post.

Thx

pdt

ps. If anyone besides me ever chases the Guadalupe
switcher, a Patched DRGW (GP-40?) will be leading
to lompoc thurs morning. They usually reach the branch
at surf around 10am or so.

The Leesdale died at Strathearn due to the Metrolink tie gang, the units are probably going to be there until mid-morning.

Oh geez... I guess I'm going to have to go out in the heat and down to Gemco now. I thought all the SP stuff would be gone by now. I haven't been over there in a long time. I remember when they had two un-patched DRGW geeps running on the Saugus for a while.
