A smorgasbord of Southern Pacific diesel power plus one electric locomotive, brought in a long freight to Butte Street Yard to be broken up into individual trains. It is shown here passing Clement Junction Tower looking east.

    The name should be Clement Junction with no “s’. See photo “1622 at Clement Junction Tower” for clear view of the tower name.

    Do you have any photographs of the Butte St. repair facility. My Grandfather retired from there in 1942.
    Thank you
