Remarks & Notes 
An eastbound Southern Pacific iron ore train heads east under Interstate 15 and past the vineyards of Ontario in the late 70s. SP SD39 5316 is teamed with a pair of SP U33Cs to pull this 60 (or so) car train, with a C-40-3 cupola caboose bringing up the markers. This train is most likely carrying iron ore imported to the US, bound for the Kaiser Steel mill in nearby Fontana. (Ontario, California November 18, 1978)

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

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