Remarks & Notes 
Two painted ladies await their next dance at the West Oakland Diesel Shop. For me these daylight painted PA's were simply the best looking diesels of all time....but then the SP was "my" railroad so I am less than objective. This was one of my earliest roles of Kodachrome, and I obviously had not learned certain rules like avoiding foreground clutter.
