Remarks & Notes 
1218 has just exited the 1832 ft long uphill grade Swannanoa Tunnel. The engine has crested the grade, which also is the Eastern Continental Divide, but the majority of the consist is still in the tunnel on the grade. I'm sure the crew is relived to be able to breath normally again!
