Out near Tacna, Arizona (yes, I marked it as Roll, but Roll is not on the main), there was a fine string of westbound trains a few miles apart for as far as the eye could see. I remember the flashing Gyralights all lined up in the distance.

Colton yard; I have since heard that SP was testing some of Southern's locomotives.
