Remarks & Notes 
A Yuma Turn is in a full throttle struggle to best the 1.7 grade and stiff curvature of a stretch railroaders call "The Goose Neck." This is what a former superintendent called the "Thousand Legs"--a term going back to some bizarre multi-unit radio trains operated up Saluda Mountain during the Brosnan years. This train has four GP38-2s/GP38s on the point, and four more in the middle as remotes.
