The Super C San Berdoo to Barstow + misc power Barstow shops 1975

Here are some photos I took of the Super C on October 26, 1975 with Bicentennial 5701 on the point.
First one of it passing through San Bernardino, next two taken at Blue Cut in Cajon Pass.

First photo is of a couple of steam generator cars, 138 & 140
Photos two and three are of a couple of the many stored SD24s at that time in Barstow. According to some of my notes from the time, the F45s had recently been returned to service after storage in Barstow

Greenflag,
Thanks for sharing a really nice series.  The 5701/02 sure stand out in their surroundings.  Really like that Barstow Yard shot too.

Thanks Brian, I've got a lot to pick from! Many from work in later years too.

Even with the nose door open, that's the best shot I've seen yet of 5941 with its "hollow" noseband.  As far as I know, it was the only Santa Fe EMD cowl to get a blue-outlined-yellow noseband in the blue and yellow warbonnet scheme.  The GE U30CG's all got "hollow" nosebands initially, but the FP45's and F45's pretty much went straight to solid blue nosebands except for 5941.

Great series and Killer shots of the Bicentennial engines! Dig that different nose band herald on the 5941!

Nice photos!

By April 1976 many of those SD24's were still stored at Barstow (stored due to the 1975 recession). Everything else had been put back into service.
