SPRR 3756 1940s Fletcher Drive Los Angeles
Southern Pacific Railroad 'F5' class 2-10-2 No. 3756. Built by Baldwin in 1924 as a class of 52 locomotives, all withdrawn by 1956.
This superb photograph of 3756 heading a freight is at Fletcher Drive crossing in Los Angeles. The road now is in an underpass at this location and all traces of this semi-rural landscape have inevitably disappeared under concrete.
