Remarks & Notes 
As a BNSF grain train churns upgrade with a quartet of manned Montana Rail Link EMD SD70ACe helpers cut into the middle of the train, another helper set slowly makes its way east back toward Helena on the adjoining main track. The action takes place at Austin, Montana, on MRL’s formidable 2.2% grade over the Continental Divide on Mullan Pass.

One artifact of the steam era that remains in use to this day; even modern AC traction locomotives need help on the biggest hills.
