Southern Pacific 9010

Our Crew
The idea to save the 9010 from the scappers torch came from an 18 year old PLA member by the name of Charles Franz.  Charles felt that the locomotive deserved a fate better than being cut up for scrap and he convinced the PLA membership that it should be saved.  The only Krauss Maffei of its kind in the world owes its existance to Charles and his chief supporter, Dennis Mann.  They are seen here with the locomotive in front of the Sunol station upon its delivery to its new home on the Niles Canyon Railway.



The following (in no particular order) are the PLA members and supporters who have given their time, knowledge and funds to the acquisition and restoration of the 9010.
