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 SSW SD45T-2 9300 for power while they do some filming near Tracy, California, on October 29, 1979. For another view of SP 8799, click HERE.

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