SP P-10's such as 2479 spent a good deal of their later life running from San Jose to San Francisco on the commutes. Some of the Pacifics were shoved aside by Mountains and Daylights in the middle 1950`s. In 1955 you could see steam along side the GP-9 #5623 'Torpedo Boats'. Photo from the collection of Gene Deimling.

3 P-10's were streamlined with skyline casing and side skirts in 1941, coming out looking very much like a 'baby' Gs-4. #2484-2486 were used to haul the San Joaquin Daylight between Oakland and Bakersfield.
