Remarks & Notes 
The smell of hot brake shoes is strong as 92 car loads of oil descend down two percent grade of Coal Creek Canyon along UP's Moffat Tunnel Route. The six locomotives (3x3) fight against gravity to control this monster of train down the mountainous grade into Denver on a cold, windy, morning on the eastern slope of the Colorado Rockies.
