.   .   .   a westbound Industry to Whittier yard hauler was coming off UP trackage rights at Bartolo entering the Puente Branch in Pico Rivera, CA MAR '79.

Ah, look at those open lumber loads on the bulkheads and an Evergreen box car, probably to be repainted SP brown in the near future.

Cheers, Jim

Great shot!  Thanks for sharing.  Probably either the Anaheim or Buena Park Hauler in those days.  With all the lumber on the head end, I'm guessing the Anaheim.

Loved those SD9's.  They had a smooth ride with those three axle trucks.

Nice shot JB. Used to hang out at Bartolo (and Whittier Jct) a lot in the early 80s during my youth. That is a quintessential SP hauler for that time for sure.
