Wasn't this the set that came to Oregon too?

Hiland, CA, Nov. 25, 1977. The Seaboard Coast Line U-36Bs, spliced by a "More Axles for Tractive Effort" (MATE) road slug, had been the rear end helpers on a westbound freight from West Colton. SCL 1851, 3215 and 1855 tested on the SP for about two months in late 1977 and early 1978.

I was up there that day.

I got some great cassett recordings of that Leslie S5TRRO
at Devore and Blue cut in the S.P.

Sweet,

Great shots of the Dynamometer car! Haven't seen many of it out on the road.
