I was lucky to catch this beauty before the green paint...
Freshly painted in the new Western Pacific green
These orange WP units sure looked better than the new green paint that was to come.
Great railroad action in Stockton and points north east on the Western Pacific
Seeing these beauties at work was worth the 7 hour drive to Stockton.
A and B units were all over the place in 1972 in Stockton, usually used for short distance runs.
F unit sits in front of the Valley Ice Company
