Sacramento Shops; Merger

From: "Ken Rattenne"

Just stumbled onto your site while looking for info on the Sacramento Shops. You stated that SP was purchased by UP in 1997. The date for the merger was 9/11/1996. Also, did not notice anything about the purchase of SP by the D&RGW which occurred in 1988. It was DRGW that shifted all heavy maintenance work for diesel locomotives to their Burnham Shops in Denver CO.
