Southern Pacific ALCo Hump Slugs

3 units (re)built
© Bob Dengler - Colton, CA. - 1974
Requiring ever increasing muscle, to shove cars over the West Colton hump, SP had Railway Supply Corporation of Alabama, rebuild 3 out of favor ALCo's into Yard Slugs in 1973. These were operated in between pairs of SD38-2's #2971 - 2976, that had been setup to control them. They were retired by 1984.
