Remarks & Notes 
As part of the celebration of Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal's 50th Anniversary, cab units from the three original tenant railroads were posted next to each other to recreate a popular PR / postcard photo from the pre-Amtrak days. From left to right are Southern Pacific E9A 6051, Union Pacific E9A 951 and Santa Fe F7A 347C on May 6, 1989. The SP and ATSF diesels are owned by the California State Railroad Museum, and the UP's E-unit is part of that road's historic fleet. Click here for a shot of SP 4449 and UP 8444 running side-by-side the previous day, and here for another angle of these cab units.
