SP 6776 helping Amtrak #5 at Colfax 1987

**Shaky video warning** 

SP 6776 on the point of Amtrak #5 California Zephyr on Donner Pass.

I don't know the guy who was squatting between the main tracks to get his shot. He probably did that to crop me out of his picture.

Colfax CA
Dec 1987

Thanks for looking.

Notable is the ATSF Lounge.  This was before it was modified for California Parlor service and assigned exclusively to the Coast Starlight.    These were a torture to work as Superliner stand-ins. Some poor LSA was having a tough trip- I feel your pain brother!

I suppose there's a small chance that was me in your frame, but I don't recall seeing the 6776 in any of my negs..
