Remarks & Notes 
With two Rio Grande SD40T-2s added as a point helper, a westbound freight climbs along the Price River at Castle Gate, Utah, on the afternoon of September 7, 1995. The helpers will be removed at Kyune, and the train will continue the climb up Soldier Summit with Southern Pacific GP60 No. 9724, Rio Grande SD40T-2 No. 5398 and Conrail GE C40-8W No. 6212 as road power. Nos. 5355 and 5369 are covered with sand and grime, indicating a few trips up the mountain in helper service out of appropriately-named Helper.
