So, while I made a proposal awhile back for a route set on Beaumont Hill in the modern times, I think one set in the Southern Pacific era could be a good idea as well. The route proposal itself would be a bit longer than the UP one, with the line going from West Colton yard to Indio, a length of about 80 miles. Indio was used as a helper pocket for the Southern Pacific, to help Westbound trains get over Beaumont Hill. The era would be the early 1990's to 1996. This would also put the Speed Lettering Paint and Kodachrome paint as possible alternate liveries for the route. Outside of the mainline runs, services can also be based around the large West Colton Yard. Speed Lettering Kodachrome Route and ruling grade (Credit: Video Rails) Rolling Stock Outside of the general freight cars of the era used on manifest trains, the following should be included in the route. 48' Well Car w/ 48ft Southern Pacific Containers (5 unit or single unit) 89ft Flat Car w/ 45ft Southern Pacific Pig Service trailers 40' Southern Pacific Sugar Beet Gondola Route Layering During this time it wasn't uncommon for SP to lease or borrow power locomotives from other railroads due to a power shortage on SP's roster. This would be perfect for the YN2 CSX SD40-2 and GP38-2 to be added to this route as borrowed power. The UP SD40-2 could also be a candidate, depending on what paint scheme it comes in.
