Remarks & Notes 
Four SD70ACe's assist two GE's on the task of lifting their heavy "container grainer" stack train through the Austin Curves and up the 2.2% grade. The name container grainer comes from the double-stacked containers being loaded with export grain, and that the train exceeds 100 tons-per-operative-brake, which on some territories limits it to 45MPH; the same speed that a normal grain train can go.
