Remarks & Notes 
A four pack of RCPE SD40-2's lead the MRCHU up out of Rapid City, SD on a Saturday morning. The train is made up of mostly bentonite clay loads and will need 4 motors to get up Wall Hill at a blistering 10 MPH. Once there, they will drop one or two motors for the westbound to bring back to Rapid to help the next day's train east over the hill again.

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
