Remarks & Notes 
Colorado’s Minturn Yard is bustling with new Southern Pacific GE AC4400CWs on September 5, 1995. To the right on the main line, a helper set trailed by No. 143 returns from pushing tonnage up the 3% grades east (south) of town, while SP No. 280 leads three others on the point of an eastbound coal load waiting for the helpers to pass so it can head east to add two sets of manned helpers to the heavy train. Another AC4400CW helper set led by No. 276 (not in the picture yet) will be cut into the 105-car train 58 cars back, while a second helper set led by No. 200 will be cut in 15-cars from the rear.

Trains pulled by modern GE locos, from Dash-9s onward. My favorite locos, probably because I worked for GE at Erie, PA.
