Remarks & Notes 
A Conrail TV intermodal train marches up the grade through Horse Shoe curve with 30,000 HP of EMD support split between five GP40/40-2s and five SD40-2s. The fourth main is gone, but the Pennsy position lights still provide guidance for trains on a beautiful fall day nearly 32 years ago.

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