Photo of the Month - December, 2002
It's early spring, 1995, but the Southern Pacific lives again almost. A white patch on the nose and another on the sides do little to mask the obvious SP heritage of newly delivered POTB 4432 as the conductor steps off for a bit of switching on a typically rain-soaked afternoon at Batterson. The 4432 was leased and later purchased after the POTB assumed operation of the SP's Tillamook branch all the way to Hillsboro. Also included in the purchase were SD-9 4405 and GP-9 3771, the two units trailing the 4432 in this photo, as well as SD-9 4406. Photo by Geoff Barnes. March, 1995.
