Remarks & Notes 
Assigned to work the Oakland Yard in August, 1969, Alco S-2 557 is now wearing an all orange paint scheme applied to many switchers and F-units in the late 60s. Of course, everything on a railroad has a nickname, and these soon became known as "pumpkins". Photo taken from my slide collection, no photographer name listed on slide.
