Remarks & Notes 
The last run of the San Francisco bound SP Train #75, "The Lark". "The Bird That Couldn't Fly" as the SP called it in their efforts to abandon the train. The loss of its RPO a year before sealed the trains fate. The men to the left are SP officials, no doubt happy at the occassion.,
