Remarks & Notes 
Hauling heavy steel coils off of Conrail, three UP 40-2s roll westward through the arid wasteland between Sand Pass and Flannigan, NV. This is the same territory that John Charles Fremont scouted for the U.S. government in the mid-1840s, which led to the building of the transcontinental railroad.

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 over several decades.
