Southern Pacific's Evening Commute "Fleet"
Third & Townsend Sts. Depot, San Francisco

Back in April, 1969, a friend of Wx4 recorded the prepatory light engine movements and subsequent train departures of Southern Pacific's Evening "Fleet" (SP employee term for morning and evening rush hour trains) Commute trains at San Francisco's Third & Townsend Sts. Depot. Accompanying this on a separate page are images of the Fleet recorded on a different day at Visitation, near Bayshore Yard, along with a pair of photos of Train 139 at San Carlos taken a few years later. The the decriptions are his. Thank you, sir! - EO
