A day at work for my dad, in 1952

SP frieght with steam helper

A day at work for my dad in 1952
This is a photo my dad shot in about 1952. My dad was the fireman on the train. He was in the Baldwin diesel. The photo is of an SP steam engine helping a Baldwin diesel AS616. The SP retired its last steam engine about 1958.

My dad was a railroader, not a railfan. To him this was a day at work! He just took his new camera to work with him to burn up a roll of film to test the camera. He took some great pictures I treasure on that road trip.
