Remarks & Notes 
Gas-Turbine #51 makes a move past John's camera on it's way from the ready tracks to a train. The Bunker C burned by the locomotive had a big carbon footprint, as is evidenced in this view. It turned out to be one of the big maintenence headaches. #51 has the distinction of being the class unit of the first of three generations of GTEL's UP rostered. (#50 was the prototype, never owned by the UP, and had double-ended cab) For more color views from that day, click here
