Collection.C.P. #61, a 70′, 62 passenger, Mail/Baggage/Smoker/Passenger Motor car completed on April 7th, 1911, and scrapped in July of 1939.


Southern Pacific #61 sits in front of the Motor Car shops in Sacramento, located just south of the main shops which still exist today.  I believe this building was also just north of the current Amtrak Station in Sacramento.  Also seen on the left is #45. Photo taken August 3rd, 1935.
