Color pics & loco history


The newly merged Burlington Northern was operating the railroad in June, 1970, when I took the following three photos.

I encountered three Geeps and one SD-9 in the yard.
GP-9 706 and SD-9 599 drug an empty train of log flats, water car X6534 (for fire supression) and caboose X203 out to the Klamath Marsh, for a runaround movement prior to heading east to the woods. Sadly, I was unable to follow the train out of town.

In 1974, it was SP's turn to run the show, as we see here with GP-9 #3761 switching a load of logs.
