Here is a look around the Jacumba yard.

The Jacumba Station still stands and is used by the Carrizo Gorge Railway.

F7A 100 came from the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train of Yakima. The engine was originally Bessemer and Lake Erie 723A before going to the Texas Southern as their 100 before heading to Washington.
