Remarks & Notes 
There are 2 switchbacks to gain altitude and get out of Casapalca, called Backus and Morkill. This is the Morkill switchback. The huge water tower on the left is part of a nearby mine, nothing to do with the railroad. The train has just processed backward from the lower switchback. It will soon resume its trip uphill.
