Southern Pacific’s narrow-gauge line in the vast Owens Valley of California was known as the “Slim Princess.” Here a single freight car separates engine from caboose near Zurich (Big Pine) in July 1959.

  2. Great photo. I believe the freight car in the photo is not a revenue move but rather an auxillary water tank car.
