Southern Pacific Railroad Extra 5314 West on Sullivans Curve

Southern Pacific Railroad Extra 5314 West on Sullivans Curve

Extra 5314 West navigates around Sullivan's Curve late in the afternoon of February 4, 1974. You can see how much tighter the curve used to be for the Santa Fe. I think this was a ten degree curve. The curve was widened in 1977 and now is very near the SP curve. Disk 52
