Remarks & Notes 
Breaking away from their train in front of the ex-Southern Pacific depot, the road power for the coast line's iconic "Oil Cans" leads the fresh helper power based out of here off their train and out to the switch at North SLO. Once there, the helper units will head back into their spur and the road power will back onto its train to continue the journey north to Wunpost. While all this takes place, remains of the Poly Fire still linger in the form of the chard hillside in the background.
