Those 3200's were horrible to have on the midday trains that might have only two or three cars.  Too much weight to stop every mile to mile and a half.  Using the dynamic brake during each stop would help a lot, but was extra work.

Always liked  SP's SDP-45's, it was nice to see them roam around the system in the Bay Area on weekends, the 3205 had a sweet sounding Nathan M-5 saw it a few times in Martinez.
