Remarks & Notes 
Two UP U-50's, a GP-7B and another Geep are in the siding at Aikins, Kansas to meet an eastbound, headed for Kansas City while Nos. 45 and 43 are going to Marysville and on to North Platte, Nebr., taking along what appears to be a baggage car. A few more minutes and the shadow would have prevented this capture on May 16, 1965.

An exclamation attributed to TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson, it is this eponymous expression of which certain images convey man and machine versus nature . . .
