Remarks & Notes 
Amtrak No. 6 rolls downhill next to the Truckee River near Boca, CA. Her two SDP40Fs apparently provided plenty of power for today's consist, since the train didn't require a lead helper to get it over Donner Summit.

What California is known for. Fires, droughts, weed, and people waving rainbow flags. Yah. Great place alright. At least the trains are nice.

Some are loved, others are hated. In the end, they are failures.

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
