Yes. The lead was mostly street trackage and ran east on 26th Street from the Wood Street Yard, turned south on Kirkham Street, and ended at Pacific Pipe which was on the south side of West Grand Avenue.

SP yard jobs came from Emeryville Yard (or from the Desert or the Glass House, and briefly from East Oakland Yard, after the jobs at Emeryville were abolished).

Santa Fe locals came from their Richmond Yard, either their regular Oakland Local or Extra Oakland Locals.

Part of the old Pacific Pipe property is now a gym.
