Remarks & Notes 
In the waining days of operations of the Fillmore & Western Railway, FWRY 1059, a 1956-built product of Alco, finds itself on the point of the eastbound Weekend Excursion train as slugs up Bellio Hill with eight cars and two locomotives in tow. You read that correctly, this four axle unit is using every bit of the 900 horsepower available to get this train over the hump on its own before descending back down into the railway's namesake town.
