Remarks & Notes 
With a crew running low on hours, BNSF 7797 races up the Feather River Canyon at the Rock Creek Trestle. Due to delays in Oroville and Pulga, this train averaged less than 20mph between Mounkes (south of Marysville on the Sac Sub) and the Rock Creek Trestle. That is over 75 miles of less than 20mph average! Dispatcher 57 decided to take a chance and give this train a "straight shot" up to Virgilia. There, a new crew would board while the current crew gets a ride to Quincy for some well deserved rest. The night before, a cold winter storm dusted the lower canyon in some fresh powder.
