Remarks & Notes 
With track work being done on the Santa Fe north track near Cajon Summit, the dispatcher has sent two LAX trains up the 3% south track. UP 3707, along with two DD40s and a GE UBoat, have hooked on to the caboose of the first LAX in order to help it up the steep grade. Plenty of power to help accomplish this task.

What California is known for. Fires, droughts, weed, and people waving rainbow flags. Yah. Great place alright. At least the trains are nice.

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves by clocking in several million miles of freight service.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
