Remarks: If the sound of EMD's on their knees in run 8 gets you all worked up, I think you'll enjoy this video! A pair of SD70mac's do battle with 150 loads on the grade up to Big Bend Tunnel.

Nice, but doesn't beat the two Chessie SD50's and 180 loads I watched at this same location in 1984. They were moving MUCH slower than your excellent vid.
