Remarks & Notes 
Shortly after daybreak on March 20, 1972, Southern Pacific's "South Local" is spotted at Sierra Vista, AZ while the crew purchases goodies from the adjacent Dunkin' Donut shop (just off to the left). Three SP GP35s are in charge: 6658, 6576 and 6574. This was within sight of our home (er, as in "mobile") just down the tracks. I was a month away from finishing my active duty hitch with the Army, and in the seven months I was stationed at Ft. Huachuca (in the background, from where this train has returned) this would be the only time I would see a train on this branch.
