Remarks & Notes 
While railfanning in the Colton area, we heard over our scanner the engineer on the Santa Fe San Jac Local informing the dispatcher that they had derailed their caboose. We arrived a few minutes later to find the 2829, 2900, and 2952, and both sets of wheels on their caboose, 999249, was the ground in Colton, CA. The location is just north (railroad east) of the Colton crossing with the Southern Pacific and the Interstate 10 freeway, across from the old depot. Fortunately, it didn't block the busy Santa Fe - Union Pacific main line into San Bernadino.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
