SP SD45 8982 winds down the canyon between Caliente and Ilmon westbound past a speeder setout on the La Mesa club's Tehachapi layout (Don DeLay photo).

Wrestling a speeder on and off is a pain in the ass. Really nice photo!

In later years the SP adopted a standard set-off that had solid timbers between the rails, a little lower than the head of the rail, and those were quite  bit easier to use.  I've tried them both.
