River Traffic
The Santa Fe crosses the river here, but the SP is on both sides. The crossing by Dayton  tower sends them one way or the other.
Tunnel motors, Geeps and SW's head south along the LA River. I was modeling the SW'-1500's and the SD45T-2's so looked hard to find a good spot for overhead views.  Love that big deck and short nose on 8293, shown below.
The photos were taken 1987-89.
I have a few old SP lights in my garage and they may have come from this sad engine. Look at all the plates  covering where lights used to be, replaced by one gumball flasher.
