Remarks & Notes 
A westbound Southern Pacific freight exits Tennessee Pass tunnel. It was common to set air in the tunnel then pull the train out of the portal onto the 3% grade. This set of air insured the brakes were warm and that a good set was in place... On this day this is likely what occurred as the smoke cloud can attest...
