Remarks & Notes 
I remember it was very very hot and only one car in the train had air conditioning. This was a trip from Denver to Fort Morgan....I don't believe the line is even there anymore. The photo was a run-by just south of Kersey. When we got to Fort Morgan it was 109 degrees. I remember sitting below the dome with a couple of female companions...you couldn't use the dome as it was even hotter up there.....I remember we ALL had one heck of a wet tee-shirt contest going on below the dome. That was the blackest heaviest smoke I'd EVER seen come out of that 4-8-4..........
