Southern Pacific Railroad SD45Ps on the Amtrak Starlight at Santa Margarita, CA

Southern Pacific SD45Ps 3207 and 3209 are pulling the Starlight (Train 12) through Santa Margarita on February 13, 1974. The tracks from Salinas have been on a gentle grade that rarely gets up to one half of one percent, but that is about to change here at Santa Margarita as the grade will soon increase to 1.9 percent.
