Remarks & Notes 
Southern Pacific Camera Car (aka Simulator Car) 8799 is a former Krauss-Maffei ML-4000 SP 9113 (nee-9010). The engine had it's prime mover removed and the front end was rebuilt to house movie cameras used to film various SP mainlines for the road's full-motion locomotive cab simulator, used to train new engineers. This engine is currently being restored to its original appearance, details of which can be found on the locomotive's web site: HTTP://sp9010.ncry.org. The car is coupled to SSW SD45T-2 9300 for power while they do some filming near Tracy, California, on October 29, 1979. For another view of SP 8799, click HERE.
