my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific GP9/E/R
32 units reclassed
In 1978 SP renumbered and reclassified some 32 GP's into 'switcher' status. This was done to provide 'heavy' yard switchers - remember this was 1978, when a GP9 was likely to be considered 'heavy'...
The units came from various backgrounds some rebuilt under either of two schemes and some never rebuilt at all.
6 units were still active in 1990, after that...
see the SP GP9 Overview for Magazine/Book References and available models.
