Remarks & Notes 
Amtrak Train #992, a Friends of the 261 Excursion has just returned from the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth, MN to the Friends of the 261 Enginehouse at Minneapolis Jct. The crew cut the engine off the head end, ran around and cut away with the rear 5 cars, and are now shoving down the BNSF Midway Sub. towards St. Anthony Jct. and MNNR Midway Yard where the Commercial will grab them and take them to the Amtrak Station.

It's certainly not an everyday occurrence that you see a 4-8-4 switching passenger cars and then shoving them around boiler first.
