Re Railing the Southern Pacific 3029
SP Index
In the fall of 1973, Train Master 3029 stubbed her toe while backing at the San Jose Engine Terminal (that's the roundhouse at extreme right). Amazingly, a M/W boom truck was able to lift up the locomotive enough to lift the rear axle off of the rail. Wx4 staff seems to recall that the loco was finally rerailed using wooden blocks, however.

The big guy in the grey jacket and (yuck!) brown bell bottoms looks like Roadmaster Elmer Stone, a well-regarded gentleman who retired in early 1983.
