Remarks & Notes 
Dark clouds of an early Summer monsoon brew overhead, while Westward winds put a damper on BNSF 5435's progress West. The train, consisting of all ex-BN, GN, NP, and SP woodchip hoppers, is loaded with cottonseed. Exceeding the 14,000 ton mark easily, 5 units, arranged 3 by 2 are on their knees in single digits for speed battling the 1 percent grade towards the Continental Divide.
