Remarks & Notes 
It's not SP's beets with a brace of SD9's but a reposition auto rack from Milpitas, CA to Nogales, AZ will do. UP's Coast Sub south of San Jose has been dwindled down to baretables and empty autos along with the oil cans further South, so finding a freight train in even marginally decent light can be a hard task to accomplish.

Two AC4400's team up to hustle 7100 feet of FEMA cars along a recently plowed field, as Spring will be here soon and the fields are the lifeblood of the Salinas Valley.
