Remarks & Notes 
Three Amtrak SDP40F’s have brought 14-car Train 3, combined Super Chief - El Capitan, down from Arizona’s summit of 7,354-ft. at Riordan to the 475-ft. level of the Colorado River as the train leaves Arizona and enters California very late on Dec. 5, 1973, which enabled this photo.
