Radio Sled under the high tension power line
Title:  Radio Sled under the high tension power line
Description:  Union Paicific "radio sled" #Y164 began life as a B23-7 when it was delivered to the Missouri Pacific as their #4669 in June of 1980. It was upgraded into a B30-7 (or B23-7M) by the MoPac, and then became Union Pacific #259 after the merger. The Union Pacific converted it into a CCRCL in June of 2004, stripping out its traction motor and fuel tank. CCRCL stands for Control Car Remote Control Locomotive. We are at the Myers Team Track in downtown LA. The building in the back with the police helicopters parked atop it is Piper Tech.
