Remarks & Notes 
Due to trackwork on the Fresno Subdivision, this train has been detoured down the Sacramento Subdivision, and, to make this detour it has to perform a shove North on the West Leg of the wye at Haggin. UP7800 eases her back for another 30 cars. It's amazing that this 61-car train could do a full backup move and walk the train, while getting signal indications. It took them 31 minutes from the time the headend passed the first time, to the time it cleared the second time.
