Remarks & Notes 
Baldwin 489 sits in the yard while 487 backs up and to couple up for a double head end up to Cumbres Pass at 10,015. The two engines coupled so smoothly there is no motion in the couplers as they lock. The fireman on 487 is signaling the engineer how much more space is left. The fireman on these engines have a tough job as the engines are hand shoveled the old fashion way.
