Remarks & Notes 
the seventies was a booming decade for SP which found the railroad chronically power short resulting in many unusual power lashups, here a set of seven SW1500's lead a Dolores yard to Taylor yard hauler on the San Pedro Branch along Slausen Ave in the city of Vernon, CA

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
