Looks good, looks like March as well.
Always liked the stripes on the nose of the WP locomotives, looked like a freight engine should.

It may have been "cheap developing" but looks good.
Sometimes when I was low on cash I used Walgreens slide film and developing.
Surprisingly most of the slides have held up well..

Great shot.

And Oroville didnt have one. You either went to Gibsons Pharmacy, Thriftys or The Barons studio if you had more funds.

My money is on Thrifty's. You could get an ice cream cone while you're there.

There were so many weird film and processing choices back then. Who knew what would last?  They might be OK out of the box but time can take  a toll.
