Remarks & Notes 
A clean locomotive is a rare sight on the Llanta - Potrerillos line. There are 12 tunnels on the upper and steepest section of the line where the altitude ranges between 7700ft / 2350m and 9350ft / 2850m. As a consequence of the addition of less oxygen in the air, steep grades and tunnels, the engines are pushed to their maximum power, thus generating thick dark smokes that make them filthy - look at pictures 308071 and 308090. The sulfuric acid tank truck is an ubiquitous sight in the area.
