Remarks & Notes 
Repairs are going on on the roof of SPCC44 while the train has stopped for a while on the main line.

This is a difficult railroad! High altitude, desert, stone slides, sharp grades and sharp curves, high temperatures, freezing temperatures, sea mist near the coast, dust and sand, heavy loads, and even earthquakes!

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
