A couple of Forties for Friday
Author: Railfan4Christ

Top photo- AT&SF SD40-2 5021 is leaving the conductor behind because he was goofing off and didn't get on board when the engineer whistled off. 

No, not really. They are switching cars at Bakersfield, CA on 10/6/1989, and he will soon be aboard for the trip to Barstow. 

Bottom photo-UP SD40-2 3792 westbound on the South Track at Cajon, CA 7/23/1995.  

Thanks for looking,

Tom

Nice set, is the engineer yelling "All aboard!" in the first shot, lol?

Why run when he could have swung aboard  the steps he just passed?  Thanks for the posts.
