Remarks & Notes 
The Big Three. Not to be confused with the gentlemen who provided the financial backing and leadership for the Central Pacific Railroad's involvement in the building of the Transcontinental Railroad, this big three involves three of the largest, operating diesel locomotives in the Southern California Railway Museum's (SCRM) roster. Standing sentinel in the middle is ATSF 108, an FP45 built in 1967 that is known for being the last passenger locomotive the Santa Fe would take delivery of. To the left is UP 942, a 1953-built EMD E8(A) unit that pulled such trains as the City of Los Angeles before it was sold to the Chicago & North Western Railway that used it in commuter service. Finally, on the right, is SP 3100 - a 1963-built, GE U25B that primarily saw freight service across SP line's before being retired. Each of these gems have been beautifully restored and are in operating condition, more often than not pulling scheduled trains along the SCRM's trackage on weekends. On this warm, spring evening however, the trio have been brought out to take part in the museum's first annual night photography session.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
