Farewell to SP Commutes and U-Boats

SP Finales

SP Finales, 1985, Farewell to Commutes and U-Boats
In the Summer of 1985 SP power stopped being used on the peninsula commute trains. This video, converted from super-eight Kodachrome movies captures that period. At the same time, across the bay, SP was scrapping some of the last of it's U-boats. As these movies were silent, this video includes the song "What I'm Missing" by Everyday Jones.
