Southern Pacific Daylight in the Santa Susana Mountains (editor's title)

Daylight in Santa Susana Mountains
Southern Pacific's Daylight passenger train was photographed in the Santa Susana Mountains near Los Angeles in 1939, just two years after the first streamlined cars and locomotives were delivered. SP opened the direct route to Los Angeles through Chatsworth in 1904 after completing several tunnels in the rugged mountains, shaving 18 miles from the original route via Saugus. The area was a favorite for train scenes in Hollywood westerns.
