This Space for Rent


When riding in towards work on the #70 bus, I noticed a cut of cars moving towards Brooklyn Yard. I didn't know if it was a train or just switching until I saw Yellow Menace #1117 and another ex-SP unit pushing the cars. The SPUP mainline is separated from 17th by PGE material yards and a couple of blocks of light industry, so there weren't very many good places to take a picture from the bus, but fortunately the Eng!s crossed Pershing street at the same time the bus did, so I was able to get a not-completely-blocked picture of this SW1500 as the bus swept majestically by.
