my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific Alco S6
70 units delivered
SP S6 #1210 at Taylor Yard 1979, being used here as the shops switcher as evidenced by the sign on the cabside...
Between 1955 and 1956 Espee receieved 70 Alco S-6 switchers. Two distinct varieties were delivered, #1033-1090 (later #1200-1257) were used as switcher, transfer and branchline units if photo captions are anything to go by.
The second type were the 'road' S6's #4634-4645 delivered 1955 (later #1270-1281), these came with all the accessories that Espee considered were needed for road sevice; light packages, train indicators and MU capable. These seemed to have worked branchlines as well as the switcher units, so not sure why the different appliance package.
Continental Grain #79 in Amarillo, TX ex Mid America Car #79, ex KS City Power & Light #79, ex SP #1279, ex SP #4643.
