Remarks & Notes 
Andean painting series The 1016 and 1018 at Rumichaca

At 4390 m above sea level, FCCA 1016 and 1018, both ex NS Dash8-39C, are climbing the difficult grade (4.27%) on the east side of the Andes Cordillera under a light snow fall. They will uncouple from their train at the Galera summit (4781m/15786ft) because the clearance of the tunnels on the section between Galera and Matucana is not large enough for them.
