Remarks & Notes 
A 16 unit wonder. The original hopper train, NS 615, lost both of it's units and was solely relying on the 4 pushers (in view coupled to the train) as sole power to get it up one of the hills just east of here. A 10 unit power move, 961, was right behind it, ran around the train and then coupled to the front of the hopper train. 12 units up front, 4 in the back, all but 2 (the 2 dead units) are running to make it up the hill, which is odd because these are empty hoppers, and clearly the train isn't that long.
