This show is about the Southern Pacific on SP’s Coast Route around the Santa Barbara area. The sections in it deal with the power that SP used on the Coastline trains in the 1970s. You never knew what was going to show up on the trains as it just depended on what was available from LA and from the north. There will be a section on the activity at the Santa Barbara station as well as the end of SP’s Coast Daylight and the beginning of Amtrak’s Coast Starlight. At the end of the program will be a short section on the ever present caboose on the end of the 1970s SP trains.
