Remarks & Notes 
"Candela" on the Andes Cordillera

At 4387m / 14393ft above sea level, FCCA 1016 and 1018, both ex NS Dash8-39C, are climbing the harsh slopes (4.27%) on the east side of the Andes Cordillera under a light snow fall. Thin air (low oxygen) facilitates post-combustion. A typical "candela" (fire) bursts out of the exhaust stack when the "maquinista" (engineer) seeks more efforts from the prime movers.
