Southern Pacific SD40R #7355
'Suffer'n Pacific'



Make no mistake, this is not a 'doctored' photo or scan. This was real and happened in 1981 when 7355 was repainted at Roseville. As far as we know, only this side received the 'special lettering'. It would not have lasted long, as soon as 'a Company Official' saw it, it would have been straight back to the paint shop to have the lettering corrected...

  • Other than a friend who was standing beside Clyde King also taking photos. These are the only known published photos to appear.
