A pair of GP30s leads 17 tank cars and a buffer south through St David Arizona on the way to Apache Nitrogen. The crew had spent about two hours digging out the cars for todays train from the yard. The railway has been cut back to Curtiss, About seven miles from its base in Benson AZ. At one time, the railway ran almost 69 miles south to a place known as Paul Spur. There was hope that an interchange to Mexico could be developed, but it did not come to pass. Never-the-less, a pair of classic GP30s makes a fine sight on a warm February day in southern Arizona.
