Charles Smiley Presents: Scarlet and Gray Memories
This is a final look at SP’s California Coastline and related branchlines. Heavy action on the Tehachapi Line and Bakersfield Yard, with views back in 1971 and in 1993 as a comparison.
This is a wealth of early SP power including the memorable ALCOs and old U-boats. See Beet Trains, Coal Drags, Mixed Freight and the “Oil Can” trains.
See the Coastline for a final-look at “locals”, heavy mainline freight trains and many of its famous branchline operations.
We bring lots of great branchline action in many California scenic and quaint locations. This was the SP we all came to love! Don’t miss out on the real Southern Pacific!
