Does anyone have any info and/or images of this locomotive? I'm guessing it's a switcher in San Diego.

I believe I have found the engine, San Diego Northern 1501.

Was the San Diego Northern this SW1500 ran for the same "Coaster" railroad which carries commuter trains today, or was this San Diego Northern a shortline in the San Diego region which has nothing to do with the present-day Coaster commuter rail?
