Remarks & Notes 
UP7788West is in charge of 4 more units on a monsterous 13,000 ton manifest. It's shown rounding the straits of the Bay. The Valero Oil Refinery lurks in the background as the train is struggling to move after stopping for 2 hours due to a dragging defect detected by a detector. The switchman walked the 7,800 foot train, and found a dragging chain, 4 cars from the rear. I hope he enjoyed his 3 mile hike today! ;-)
