Remarks & Notes 
Under threatening skies, rainbow colored ridges, and down to a literal crawl, pusher set J61 shoves hard uphill over the massive Trace Fork trestle enroute to Cedar Bluff. Undergoing tests with the new ES44ACs, NS appears to be saving motors by only using two up front rather than the usual three and two pushers on the rear rather than the mandatory three over this grade.
