When I was finally able to pull myself away from the turntable, I set out to explore to rest of the Hardy Street Shops. The diversity of locomotives and cabooses was pretty impressive. Also impressive, looking back, was the access a 16-year old boy had–just me and my hand-me-down Minolta.
The diversity of equipment was staggering.
I had to go peek at the turntable one more time before I left this magical place…
In part III, I will share some of the cabooses I shot there as well as my sneaking up into an Alco S-6 (#1257) just a few months before it would leave the SP in July of 1979.
