Remarks & Notes 
Fresh from the factory UP8031 digs into the 10 degree curves of the Austin Loops on the 2.2% battle for Mullan Pass. The rail was still wet from a passing storm, and sounds of slipping wheels, RUN-8, and distant thunder was quite a experience! The aftermath of a small manifest derailment can be see in the field in the middle of the loop. The train is bound for Pacific Gas and Electric's Boardman, Oregon electric generating plant. The train rarely utilizes Union Pacific power, however this day was an exception.
