Remarks & Notes 
As raindrops continue to patter and run down on the roundhouse office windows, Montana Rail Link Machinist Doug Garcia contemplates what these new EMD locomotives will mean to his job after changing the filthy air filters on Montana Rail Link SD70ACe Nos. 4305 and 4302 at Helena, Montana, late in the afternoon of October 8, 2005. The the steep climb up Mullan Pass west of Helena, and the long, confining summit tunnel are very hard on locomotives. In 2009, MRL enlarged the clearances of Mullan Tunnel to ease the situation a bit, but as long as trains continue to climb Mullan Pass, the Helena Roundhouse will always have to care for the well-used helpers that call Helena home.
