3751 12/91 break in run
Author: SGillings

Well, as before, I cannot get the scanned picture to appear correctly, so I would appreciate it if someone would correct and again let me know how to correctly post.

This was taken in late December 1991 during the break in run of 3751 from San Bernardino to Los Angeles (via the Santa Fe 3rd district).  It ran back to San Bernardino via Pasadena (Santa Fe's 2nd district), it's first run on a main line since 1953.  I think that my uncle took it, as I met him near Tustin Avenue and Orangethorpe in Placentia, California.  As it crossed Orangethorpe just a few seconds later, there was no whistle.  I was not aware that the city had no whistling in that area.

To my eyes this appears to be just west of Fullerton Jct approaching the Lemon St. underpass.

This is actually the January 12, 1999 run when 3751 moved from Fontana to Redondo Junction. 

The December 1991 test run had a second passenger car and the train was TOFC rather than double stacks.

This was the semi-last-minute kept quite unit it actually occured quasi proof of SBHRS professionalism to the RR run, correct?

I never paid attention to the no whistle rule.  Nobody ever complained.  Not even after several midnight runs from downtown back to Museum of Transportation with 1522.
