Remarks & Notes 
I found this beauty while passing through Helper, Utah. Its an ex. D&RGW Scale Test car. If you enlarge and zoom in you will learn that it weighs 80,000 pounds, has no air brakes, and must be handled as the first car ahead of the last car in the train. I wonder where they put this car when a rear end helper is used.
