Remarks & Notes 
In October 1995, late in the afternoon on Donner Pass, two big GEs hold back tonnage as they come down the mountain with a manifest in tow. If you look carefully, you can see where the downhill main used to be, which went around the outside of the rock outcropping the tunnel in the background pierces.
