Remarks & Notes 
It is Easter Sunday, 1971, as #3006 readies to leave Sacramento for Tracy with the Sacramento Daylight. The connection with the San Joaquin Daylight had been moved to Tracy from Lathrop the previous year. Only a few days remain as the coming of Amtrak will end both trains on April 30th. Of note in the far background, the SP's hospital and to the left, SP cars parked on the private car track. Where the train is sitting, is now the depot extension of Sacramento's light rail system.

In the years after World War II Southern Pacific went from being the most bullish railroad on passenger service to one of its biggest detractors. It continually downgraded service until Amtrak took over what remained.
