Remarks & Notes 
Crud the Genset blew up! Although this track is old Los Angeles & Salt Lake, so I'm not sure it's right to call the SW1500 by its SP moniker of Crud, and the Genset didn't really blow up, but it does look like one of its engines caught fire. Image is taken at the Myers Team Track, across from the Union Pacific freight house (a mid century building). The skyscraper in the background is the MTA Tower, and is a part of the Los Angeles Union Station complex. SW1500 #1199 was delivered to the Southern Pacific as #2657 in May of 1972. The 3GS21B behind it, #2707, was delivered in December of 2006.
