Nostalgic PLA Equipment Move
Part 4 - Escape From West Oakland
Finally, at just past 8AM, it was
time for this train to move. Move as
in get out of Oakland which for some of this museum equipment was
indeed a big deal in sitting around the Oakand Army base for years and
decades! Engineer Lou and crew are seen on board ready to go with full
SP lights aglow. I wonder where Howard is hiding?
Love this shot because minus
the new I-880/80 freeway interchange and
backside of a big rig in the background, this shot could almost be from
40-50 years ago! This was about the only angle on this train to block
the out of place passenger cars and out of era stuff.
