There were lots of photo opportunities during National Train Day festivities at the historic Los Angeles Union State this past Saturday, from trains to cars to buildings to people. Here is one of my favorites showing Santa Fe 3781, built in 1927, as well as an old Cadillac, a Railway Express truck, and, just for good measure, a few elderly people.
I couldn’t verify it, but I heard that the Cadillac and the Railway Express truck are from 1927, the same year that Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia built Santa Fe 3751.
Not until just a while ago did I recognize the lady in front. Later that day I was talking with her. She’s 83 years old and lives in Riverside, California. She and her boyfriend, the guy in the orange cap that she’s following, drove over for the festivities. She’s almost as old as the Santa Fe 3751; both ladies seem to be doing quite well.
