Remarks & Notes 
After a major derailment involving Boeing fuselages shut down MRL's 4th Subdivision, the decision was made to reroute several heavy trains over the 10th Subdivision and Evaro Hill by using manned helpers. Early on the morning of Independence Day, a two-unit point helper leads an eastbound PASLAU up the Flathead River between Perma and Dixon. Upon reaching Dixon, the helper set will be cut in mid-train for the 2.2% climb up Evaro Hill.
