Two new units lead a westbound over Mud Creek north of Chico, Ca. on SP's East Valley Line back in November of 1994.

Good looking locomotives.  Thanks for showing us this photo of them.

I remember when these new units first showed up on The Hill.  I was impressed- 4 Wings!

Looks like they have a Cadillac behind them to show those youngsters a thing or two.

I remember reading these were well-received by the engineers operating them.  Did they come with desktop, or AAR control stands?

These units came with desktop control stands. What thrilled us were the working air condituioners! What took some getting used to for
an SP hoghead were switching with them. Eight foot arms would have helped, mine didn't quite reach that far.
