Remarks & Notes 
Kodak's grainy Tri-X Pan to the rescue, as it's after 8 PM at night when the SJT "San Jose Turn" makes an appearance in Milpitas after an ENTIRE DAY OF NO TRAINS along the WP San Jose Branch. Well, at least not that we had seen. The train is seen here north of Milpitas Yard. GP40 #3539 was delivered September 1971. This Stockton to Milpitas round trip was supposed to operate with the Final Four F units, but got second generation power for our one day seeing it. Taken with an Argus Cosina STL 1000 of the same vintage as the GP40.
