Remarks & Notes 
CNW 6704,6712,6702 have 105 loads on the roll at Partridge. This was the C628's last spring in ore service and they probably were the last Century's operating for a major RR in the US. A few had been repainted a year or so before this photo, as can be seen on the trailing 6712. The leader on today's train no doubt is wearing the same coat of paint CNW applied not long after buying unit from N&W 13 years earlier.
