Remarks & Notes 
Hyndman, PA 7/5/2013 - The westbound Q-217 is racing along the flatlands just ahead of the stiff climb over the former B&O's Sand Patch Grade. The GE C-40-8CW helper engine 7695 is already shoving hard against the empty autoracks to help gain momentum. Within just a few miles the train will be crawling as it struggles to tackle nearly 2,000 feet of elevation on its way over the Allegheny Mountains.

Pace and pan shots of trains. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
