Remarks & Notes 
Southern Pacific Camera Car (aka Simulator Car) 8799 is a former Krauss-Maffei ML-4000 SP 9113 (nee-9010). The engine had it's prime mover removed and the front end was rebuilt to house movie cameras used to film various SP mainlines for the road's full-motion locomotive cab simulator, used to train new engineers. This engine is currently being restored to its original appearance, details of which can be found on the locomotive's web site: HTTP://sp9010.ncry.org. The car is coupled to a brake sled (SP MW9100) built on the frame of an old SP FM H24-66 (SP 3027). For another view of SP 8799 out on the road doing some filming, click HERE.
