AMTK 523
Title:  AMTK 523
Description:  Amtrak's #3, the "Southwest Limited," crosses the Los Angeles River as it approaches its final destination at Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal early in the morning in February 1974. A trio of EMD SDP40F diesels (523, 525 and 505), from Amtrak's first order of new power, leads the train on this day. In the early days of Amtrak, Santa Fe would not allow the use of their "Super Chief" name to be used by Amtrak, hence the train's early moniker "Southwest Limited." In October 1984, Santa Fe deemed Amtrak's improvements to this train sufficient and the railroad allowed the use of their trademarked name to be used by Amtrak, and the old "Super Chief" was reborn as the "Southwest Chief." Note that the old Santa Fe advertising on the bridge was still in place, and that the L.A. River's concrete banks are not covered in graffiti! (And what appears to be graffiti on the retaining wall on the left, behind the cut of cars, is actually an old advertisement.)

Title:  AMTK 504
Description:  "May Gray" is the order of the day as a westbound Amtrak "San Diegan" rolls into the station in Fullerton, California. In the distance an automobile can be seen crossing the tracks on Lemon Avenue (which now passes under the tracks), and a block of mechanical refrigerator cars on the siding to the right was a typical sight at the time. Things have certainly changed at the station since May 1974!
