Remarks & Notes 
The curve through Loachapoka is superelevated, which is great for southbounds running downhill at 50+, but tough on the lower, inside rail when northbounds drag up the grade at 10-12 mph. This southbound is the first move over a quicky patch of a broken rail, but - in something of a no-win situation - they're moving at a crawl to see how the patch holds up, but the lower speed greatly increases the stress on that patch.
