Remarks & Notes 
Southbound through freight 865 bursts from the south portal of 6,544-foot Hagans Tunnel in 1974. Ahead is the switchback that will turn the train 90 degrees left and raise it just over 100 feet in elevation. The second unit is specially-painted "XR" (for Extra Reliable---although the U30C really wasn't all that reliable!) 1499.
