DescriptionOn an autumn evening 1977, what was a most common consist is shown working mixed tonnage north toward Taylor Yard along the east bank of the Los Angeles River. All are gone of course, but not in the order one might have thought. The 6534, a GP35, was the first to go when it was wrecked and vacated from the roster the following year. The SD7, number 1435, emerged from rebuilding in January 1980 as the 1513. Retired twelve years later, a cutting torch in Spokane, Washington ended its thirty-nine year career. The U25B, number 6744, will be retired in 1979, then rebuilt as TEBU 1604 in 1981, lasting until 1994.
