Remarks & Notes 
Close-up of the connecting hose between tank cars on SP's unit oil train, run between Saco and Dolores, CA. The shipper would fill interconnected sets of cars at the same time, with the crude passing through these hoses from one car to the next. To unload, they would force the crude out of the cars using nitrogen.

A much needed album given that there is no "category" to identify these pictures
Prototype for everything . . .

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
