An 8-car special running as 2nd 3 arrived at Pasadena, California on August 21, 1949. It was a theatre troupe with baggage cars loaded with stage props, etc. The 2915 was used to spot the baggage cars at the auto dock for unloading. Pretty tight curve for such a long wheelbase
locomotive. I’ll guess the crew got extra pay for switching. Stan Kistler photo, used by permission.
