Remarks & Notes 
AMTK units 150 & 151 lead Zephyr #5 as they charge up the grade about to enter Tunnel 1. Shortly before this, the train was struggling to get up the grade at the Big Ten Curve, with two stacks of black exhaust visible off in the distance. I was hoping to see the same thing here, but it appears that they managed this hill a bit easier.
