We were on a trip to visit friends in Florida and thing swing north to visit supporters in Virginia Beach. We overnighted in Lake Charles.

Engine 3199 was built in November 1974 and served along with two other GP-40Ps to supplement the commuter fleet of engines between San Jose and San Francisco. After Caltrain received their own locomotives for commuter operations in 1985, the engines were transfered to Texas. Disk 101
