If a locomotive still has working mars/gyralights, FRA regs say it doesn't need ditch lights! Too bad those lights are so rare...

I really miss the Mars lights...Ditch lights just don't do any justice!!

I did, and with the gyralights they looked pretty cool!

Indeed! I only wish I was old enough to have seen them in person! :-)

The pride of the fleet back in the 70's!!

I think SP got their money out of these ol' gals. They ran the hell out of them, rebuilt them, and kept them long after most other roads traded theirs in or scraped 'um. Many were sold to shortlines or leasing companies, although a lot of them were "vacated" from the roster, which means abandoned along what was the SP system. The "vacated" units were wasted, as they have been left for vandals, copper thieves and Mother Nature to play with.

No! There's only 1 SD9 in Willits today, and a couple two or three GEEPS. This photo was back in the glory days.
