Remarks & Notes 
The last run of the San Francisco bound SP Train #75, "The Lark". "The Bird That Couldn't Fly" as the SP called it in their efforts to abandon the train. The loss of its RPO a year before sealed the trains fate. The men to the left are SP officials, no doubt happy at the occassion.,

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.
