SP purchased four TR6 sets for use on the Northwestern Pacific. While on the NWP, SP broke up the sets by replacing the drawbar between the A and B units with standard draft gears and couplers, and a rear headlight was added to the A units. The A units were then sent to the LA Division while dynamic brake equipped SW8's were then m.u.ed with the TR6B's. Initially they continued to be used on the NWP, then were used in branch line service on the SP in northern California. Around 1961 they were reassigned to the Roseville hump, where they worked until retired.

TR6A 4600 (remembered 1100; originally EMD demonstrator 1600A) is preserved at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum at Portola.
