Interesting the 6 green boxes with BN reporting marks but no logo's. I wonder where they
came from?

Thanks Bob!

Great Video, and nice job on the transfer (from VHS to Digital,I assume?) Thanks for showing all your local (for me) films and vids, really hits home, since I grew up in Highgrove,Calif.

Very impressive, as usual. That was probably the one and only time such a consist was ever put together by the SP.
Doesn't seem a like a long train, probably a shade overpowered with the helpers.
The all green BN cars were norm for that time. Late 80's BN went cheap and started repainting freight cars all green with no logo. It lasted a bit, then they added the logo back but I believe with a stripe underneath it. That was the final scheme before the merger.

You actually got SP 7600, not SSW 7600. It is one of the 3 GP40P-2 units.
