Everyone on this list who is also a member of the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society should remember the Fall 2002 issue of the SP Trainline magazine that had a very good article on the Salt Lake Division. Included therein was a reproduction of a switch list for freight train 2-563, Imlay to Sparks, Nevada (west bound), on May 5, 1944.

Included in this train is CN #209636, an eight-hatch reefer built in 1942. It was loaded with fish and destined to San Francisco, CA. Handling instructions for this car was "DNR"--do not re-ice.
