F3's on the CZ, Altamont Feb 1970
Author: drew1946

A solid set of F3's, led by 803A, on the Zephyr Eastbound thru Altamont, February 1970. Also, a steam generator car as the old F3's probably were unable to provide enough steam.

A month before it ended? I thought the F3s were gone before that.

Is that the UP on the lower right?

Nope - that is the SP.

That WAS the SP --- removed circa 1985

Drew you've got the shots. Theres no question you were out there shooting the good stuff. I look at the dates and I try and think what I was doing at that time and all I can come up with is PARTYING. You have by far the best photos on this site.

Those were the days! The SP was still there, while the county dump and the windmills weren't!

Ah, these youngsters! If you consider the UP on the lower right, you could also say that's the UP in the foreground. Hiss!

The F3's stuck around after the Zephyr ended doing freight service for a bit...

Drew, another nice shot you got that I should have been out trying to get. Thanks for posting.

Here's a set of passenger Fs in freight service in Milpitas in October, 1970 after discontinuance of the Zephyr.

good shot DJ! Just visited this spot a last week but din't bother to climb up above that far above the mainline. Actually, with the water retention from the recent two months of constant storms, getting up there is one slippery muddy mess...
