Additional SP Locations/Directions
Author: Art045

Good Morning - here are three shot by Norm MacDonald while he worked for EMD.  The shot of the 6157 and train was taken while Norm was working the test train with EMD GP9 7257 (and others).  The 7257 had an April 1955 build date and other shots taken on this trip date to June of that year.  The other two shots were taken in a consist including the EMD test car, etc.  Thanks in advance for any/all thoughts on locations/directions for these three shots!  All the best, Art

The first shot looks to be around the siding at Cliff.

Yeah, the 801 (?) in the numberboards suggests
the first one is the west end of Cliff. Don't recall
when the siding got extended around the bend.
(After 1972, it seems.)

Would the three-digit numbers of the units in the third photo suggest somewhere on the Texas & New Orleans?
