There are some amazing loops and horseshoe curves on the Craig Branch between Bond and Toponas. One such horseshoe curve is here, about a mile west of the siding of Crater. The head end of UP 5948 comes around the curve on the right while the tail end DPU's enter Tunnel 49 on the left side of the image.
