Remarks & Notes 
The Union Pacific's Anaheim Branch was in need of a little weed abatement, and the railroad sent a weed sprayer down to Anaheim and back to spray some weed killer along the right-of-way. The train, led by GP30 710, was passing the UP station in Fullerton, not long after leaving Anaheim. Today, the GP30 is gone, the caboose is gone, the station's freight platform is gone - even the tracks are gone. But that station? It is still in use, although it was moved across the UP tracks, across the Santa Fe tracks (parallel to the UP line, behind the warehouse with the grain trailer next to it) and across Harbor Boulevard (the bridge over which the train has already crossed) – and is now a very busy Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant in the Fullerton Amtrak station's parking lot. Click HERE to see a rear view of the train, including the weed sprayer car. (Fullerton, California – January 20, 1977)

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
