Here's another true legend of South Bay, Jerry "Who's callinnnnnnnng Southhhhhhh Bayyyyyy" Warford.

Jerry's claim to fame are his famous (or infamous) radio announcements on the First Trick. 

Like many railroaders....His great sense of humor and colorful personality make him a true living legend of railroading.

Thank You Leo for the great photos!
