The engineer on the UP 3544 west has invited my brother and fellow Railpictures contributor James to climb aboard and come visit in the cab, as my brother is on the front porch as I took this photo. I don't know how many times I would be taking a photo of a train, and the next minute see my brother waving at me from inside the cab of the lead engine. It was a very common occurrence as James would just walk up and ask if the crew if he could come aboard. The power for this westbound coal train had UP 3544, UP 3469, NW 6103, UP 2903, and dead in tow UP 6909 DD40X. Ah the good old days.
