F Unit Friday, SP Black Widow, Donner Pass Power, March, 1967
Author: FiveChime

A transition period for motive power on the SP Overland Route over Donner. 
F's still in use but newer power beginning to appear. Crews seemed to like the F's 
because they continued to be placed on the point of trains sometime after the 
newer power arrived. Roseville, March 1967.
Regards, Jim Evans

I always preferred the F's on the point instead of the newer stuff.

That ramp had a lot of business. Two Fs equal one 6 axle

FWIW, with traction motor short time ratings, the F's should be put on the point of the newer power.
