SW9 306 at Birmingham, Alabama in July 1977.

This is the Mechanical Department’s locomotive service tracks area at East Thomas Yard. The locomotive is on the turntable lead. This facility’s turntable and converted roundhouse diesel shop are to the right of this image.

The view is looking northwest.

A later view of the elevated tank car in the distance while being repainted can also be seen in the Frisco Archive.

Special thanks to Mark Davidson.
