(C) 1999 Tony Madieros, SP 4 axle slug #1013 at Stockton, CA.

SP Yard Slug, first paired with MP15AC mothers, more recently with SW1500's. These are re-cycled L&N NW type Switchers, of until recently, indeterminate heritage built by GE. Now with the release of Bill Shippen's 'SP 1995 Motive Power Annual', (Four Ways West Publications), we finally find out their heritage.

AFAIK they only ever operated at Eugene, Roseville and Tucson.
