U30C both built in 1968 – no location
4361 looks as used up as this slide. Reminder to scan and save before we all fade !
So these are really great to me. So much color and texture and details in these retired coaches.
These slides are mounted in thick plastic which is interesting too.
Being nosey I zoomed in on the brake wheel to read the lettering.
Seems Miner is still around : https://www.minerent.com/index.php but be careful they have all sorts on interesting features there like the boxcar rotate : https://www.minerent.com/products/interactive/interactive.html and you will spend too much time playing around there.
Kodachrome Processed by Kodak
Sorry been a bit busy but here we are on the SP& S in 1971 Ektachrome
Funny how Dad never marked any slides so when I came to these I was almost surprised. But not really, the 4000s were special as far as I can tell and I guess that the fact that we can read the engine number in the image was too obvious. I don’t know where these were taken but I still bet on the San Jose, California area.
If you are old enough, you have experienced the slide show with one slide that always pops up sideways.
Its usually a really good shot too.
Strangely I managed to take the first image to illustrate the point and the iPhone manages to save it sideways – it must be destiny.
Anyway, scroll down and you can see the proper image (sorry about the fuzz and dust its from 1972 after all.
Found a box of SP. When I say a box I mean a copier paper sized box full of Kodak slide boxes – see below. The marking says SP + SP Special three boxes. Looking at the first slide I’d say they are pretty likely to be special
I googled a bit and struck out – but I want to say Oregon yellow plates on the Maverick and the Honda CB may help. Where are we ?
My Dad’s friend David Hardie, seems to have made several duplicates and shared with him over the years. I usually don’t scan those and share since I don’t own the content, but I scanned this one in my assembly line and it’s worth a share.
