Remarks & Notes 
With an SD45 added for "the Hill" the Reno Fun Train is dropping downgrade on the now removed #1 track toward the snow sheds at Norden. This was part of the original Central Pacific grade and was abandoned by the SP in 1993 in favor of sending everything over the #2 track thru Tunnel 41.

In the years after World War II Southern Pacific went from being the most bullish railroad on passenger service to one of its biggest detractors. It continually downgraded service until Amtrak took over what remained.
