Remarks & Notes 
For the second time in three days, UP 2760 leads a 17-car sales and marketing special over the ex-Southern Pacific coast line...this time traveling back south. After traveling north from Gemco to San Luis Obispo the first day, the train got an early start to its second day leaving the Central Coast before dawn and arriving into Oakland in the mid-morning. After pausing in Oakland for a few hours, the train got back on the move and traveled north to Martinez before heading east to Sacramento. From there, the train turned south and passed through Stockton before turning to the west at Lathrop and heading over Altamont Pass just after sunset. Making a short stop in San Jose for a crew change, the train quickly got back on the move and made the run down the Coast Subdivision arriving into San Luis just before 3:00 a.m. on the third day of its run. Already hours in its third day of travel, the train was back on the move before dawn passing through Santa Barbara just after 8:00 a.m. Now that you know the whole story! Roughly 30 minutes after meeting Amtrak 761 at Oxnard, UP 2760 leads its train off Santa Susana Pass between Tunnels 27 and 28 as it approaches Chatsworth as the morning overcast burns off. After passing through Chatsworth, the train would go on to Gemco where it would tie down for the day.

Tier IV locomotives are the safest, cleanest, and most fuel efficient locomotives on the rails today. Unfortunately, most of them are ugly and are as quiet as an ACS-64.
