Southern Pacific 18
March 23-24, 2023
Southern Pacific #18, also known as the “Slim Princess”, is an oil-fired 4-6-0 “Ten-Wheeler” narrow gauge locomotive built by Baldwin in 1911. In 2017, the SP 18 was restored to operating condition and has traveled to several railroads and museums. In the spring of 2023, the SP 18 will travel to Laws Railroad Museum in CA for a visit.
The Laws Railroad Museum Historic Site features a number of structures including a depot, water tower, turntable, and other buildings. Many of the buildings are authentic Southern Pacific narrow gauge buildings. Sister locomotive 4-6-0 SP #9 is also on display in the yard.
For our photo shoot, the SP 18 will move around various parts of the museum grounds and do staged shots as well as short runbys with SP narrow gauge freight cars. We’ll have a number of reenactors on hand to help enhance the scenes.
Each day, the photo shoots will feature a morning session, an afternoon session, and a night session. Most of the scenes will be repeated daily, but there will be slight variations from day to day.
Our photo shoots occur on Thursday and Friday. There will be a museum-sponsored public event on Saturday and Sunday.
