old Southern Pacific publicity painting

A SP cab ahead in the mountains.

An old Southern Pacific publicity painting from the late 1940's shows a "cabhead" assaulting a hill in the snowy mountains somewhere on the SP. They designed this unique steam locomotive to be used in mountainous territory to give the head end crews a better view. It was located at the rear of the locomotive.

 

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
