SP Geeps Out Of Bayshore, May, 1976
Author: FiveChime

As I recall, this was just about the time that SP started using a lot of SW1500s to power Pennisula freight so
seeing all these GP9s was getting rare. 
1st photo is comingh out of Bayshore and 2nd same train eastbound in northern Millbrae.
I was living right next to the railroad then and saw a  lot of freights. The Esast Pleasanton
Turn (Rock Train) which historically would use a variety of different motive power, in 1976
and beyond would have four SW1500s, the TBX would get two, and various other freights, one.
Regards, Jim Evans

Nice shots, thanks for sharing.

Of note, the SP 2667 is back in CA as the BUGX 2667, and is slated to be painted back to red and gray.
