Remarks & Notes 
Three units – a pair of GE U50’s and an EMD DD35B – labor up Archer Hill, Union Pacific’s climb from Crow Creek east of Cheyenne, the day after Christmas, 1966. While not the ordeal nor the rugged scenery of Sherman Hill west of town, Archer, with a two-and-a-half-mile climb reaching a maximum of 0.7 percent eastbound, offers its own challenges, and with a steady stream of traffic both ways its own rewards to the photographer who can endure the neverending wind.
