Train 991 rolls by the helper spur on June 11, 1980.
About an hour later train EUASY (Extra 8801 East) slows to add a two unit helper. The lead unit was SP's second SD45. It was built in 1966, has 3,600 horsepower, and weighs 206 tons. No that is not a dusty slide, but a bug splattered windshield on engine 8891, another SD45. Notice the L shaped windshield. That is the old highway to Tehachapi (now the Bena Highway) on the left.
