Remarks & Notes 
Back in the good ole days of railfanning when the railroad was four-tracks wide, the signal system was as it should be, manifest traffic prevailed and most everyone was friendly, a GP9 and a GP9B (still wearing its keystones) come slugging it out on a summer afternoon as they round McGinley's Curve on the west side of Horseshoe.
