Remarks & Notes 
About an hour into its second trip over Donner finds the SPMW 209 cleaning up the leftovers of an Eastbound Spreader set up Main #1. This single Rotary set included the SPMW 8208 "snail" for electric power, and UP 8444/UP 8585 for pushing power. The sound of that B-unit snail's classic era 567 prime mover slowly making it's way around Coldstream Canyon was sweet music to our ears. ;)
