Remarks & Notes 
Burlington Northern’s turn to Climax, Colorado, has returned to its base of Leadville, and the crew is putting the caboose over to the roundhouse before spotting the two cars over on the interchange track for the Rio Grande in July 1984. Afternoon storms are building over the “two-mile high city,” and the crew will soon have EMD SD9 No. 6223 safely tucked away in the roundhouse and call it a day. This branch was a former Colorado and Southern line and was isolated from the rest of the system, with its only connection to the outside world a Rio Grande branch off the Tennessee Pass main line at Malta. This line will later become tourist railroad Leadville, Colorado & Southern.
