For my 600th upload, we're going to back to SLO to watch empty autos snake around the Cuesta Grade. UP 1989 was 2nd out for this run.
Auto racks soon will be tackling the 2.2% incline of the Cuesta Grade.
This empty auto train stalled on the Cuesta Grade this afternoon requiring the assistance of the SLO helper pool. Some early EMDs descend the grade to a crew change at the depot.
