Remarks & Notes 
As the sun drops (along with the temperature) at Clifton Forge, a GP40-2 idles---awaiting its next call to duty. An engineer will slide into the seat, turn on the generator field switch, release the independent brake, put the reverser into forward, notch her back, and the EMD will awaken from its coma. Until then, it just idles away, with the air compressor kicking on every now and then to keep the main reservoir charged. All in a day's work.
