Remarks & Notes 
Buenos Aires al Pacifico S.A.'s #8512 crawls upgrade to the Colegiales suburban station with his 2.000 ton. grain train. The 1.800 HP ALCo. is so close to a stall in the 0,69 % grade that his anxious hogger has climbed to the front handrail, opened the lid of the sandbox and catched some sand so to manually spread it over the rails to increase much needed adhesion. While the train moves slowly and out of the grade, commuter trains pile behind waiting for the line to clear.
