Remarks & Notes 
Former GN F45, BN 6603 follows GN practice of running locos long hood front after the lead SD45 had an axle failure at Quincy, WA. Train 3, BN's hottest train was only delayed about 15 minutes while the crew set out the SD45, which left 6603 on the point. The crew ran this consist from the trailing SD40-2 which must have given the engineer a view comparable to a UP Big Boy. Units were adjusted about 40 minutes later in Wenatchee before train 3 headed over Stevens Pass to Seattle.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
