A day in the Valley.

UP 1450 EMD GP40-2, former SP 7661

UP 1450 in Tracy
This old warrior, Union Pacific (Southern Pacific) 1450, former SP 7661, has seen better days. The GP40-2 is shown here shoving caboose SP 4759 along Sixth and MacArthur in Tracy on May 7, 2010.
According to Evan Werkema, "UP's Tracy switcher coming off the spur that used to serve Holly Sugar (the spur still has a few customers south of 205). UP's switcher serves most of the remaining rail-served industries in the Tracy area, including customers on the remaining stub of the SP main line toward Altamont Pass and on spurs off the ex-WP main at Carbona and behind the Tracy ACE station. So far as I know, the first customer Cal Northern serves is south of Lyoth."
