my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
5305 - 5314
10 units delivered
DRGW took delivery of 10 EMD SD9's in 1957. All were off the roster by 1991.
These units were often stored when business was slack. All units except #5305, were stored at one time or another. Those stored (except #5306 and 5308) were reactivated in 1988 when the SP was looking for power.
Although there were only ten units, a couple of variations appeared. #5310 has a non-standard headlight package, as in the above photo.
#5305 had an accident in 1972, and was rebuilt with an EMD supplied low-nose; then assigned to the hump at Grand Junction, CO.
