Psgr Extra 151 South has crossed the Searchmont Highway on a pleasant late July afternoon. This was the time when the Agawa Canyon Tour was becoming very popular and No. 1 and 2 had reached maximum length (about 25 or so cars total) so psgr extras were called for the overflow. Here the train has some of the so-called "Jesse James" coaches (called that account their age) as well as a couple of the ex-Central of Georgia "City of Miami" coaches and the ex IC-MOP lunch car on the tail end.

Back then no one minded people standing in the vestibules...try that today on the sanitized and sealed tour train :).

Soon the Agawa Canyon Tour would be operated as a Canyon Turn running as Second Class Passenger Trains No. 3 and No. 4.

The 151 is still in service today working a grain elevator in Saginaw, Texas. Link to the photo on my web site:
