Remarks & Notes 
The SD-45 and C-636 are in notch 8 as they shove a freight up the eastern slope of the Alleghenies. The open cab windows and doors provide little relief for the pusher crew from the cloud of exhaust smoke and sand, and the deafening noise on this blistering hot and humid summer day.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
