Remarks & Notes 
In less than ideal weather conditions for photography and railroading, no less than 10 helpers cut into eastbound coal #788 at Minturn in late December 1981. The train departed almost on dusk with five SD40T-2s on the point, the ten helpers (3128 3110 3016 3099 3073 3124 3113 3101 3013 3121) and another three tunnel motors in the swing, a total of 52,500 hp for 100 cars.
