Remarks: SD70MAC 4769, C40-8W 7715, and GP38-2 2745 were locked in a full-throttle fight with gravity as they clawed their way to the summit at Sand Patch on March 26th with 143 cars on the drawbar. The roar of the head-end trio was replaced first by the marching rhythm of the freight cars, and then by the squeal of brakes as the gravitational battle began again on the other side of the summit. As an emphatic finish to the parade, the tail end of the beast was topped off by SD60I 8755 and C40-8 7641. All the effort expended the climb took its toll - somewhere outside of Cumberland, the engineer announced on the radio that the 4769 had been shut down due to low water.
