Amazing to think such a little light could cost so much..
Actually, the covers were for the removed Mars light, and the RED emergency light which was right above the Mars light. They were NOT required, as Mr Mr Sebastian stated, but were an option for individual Railroads. Southern Pacific removed most of them as the price of upkeep was to high.
That piece of steel is a plate covering the place where the gyralight used to be. They were required on all locomotives about 6 yrs prior to this photo. The plate above that one is for the mars light wich was activated on helper units used for pushing trains from the rear.
Are these the locomotives up in Eureka? i know I've seen them around before.
The good old days...ready to head South!!
Nice Tony, what years did work on the NWP?
Tony Thank you for the great pictures. About what year were they taken, and what years did you work for NWP? Hope that you have more photos that you will be posting
