Remarks & Notes 
The Sacramento Northern GP7 #712 leads Western Pacific's early morning APF, the "Auto Parts Forwarder" up to the Milpitas Wye. Behind the train is the large Ford plant, which was the lifeblood of the Western Pacific at that time. GP7 #712 was delivered to the Western Pacific in April of 1953. After retirement, it went to the Western Railway Museum in Niles, California. Later still, it was sent to the Western Pacific musuem in Portola, California, where it is located today.
