Remarks & Notes 
One of Southern Pacific's magnificent cab forward articulated locomotives awaits its fate in a South San Francisco scrap yard. The tender has already been cut down to its frame, and the locomotive will soon follow. The saddest image in my collection.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
