As the grade increases, the engineer of the West Local throttles up a bit and the second unit lets a little exhaust go. The wind is blowing pretty good, taking some low-lying quickly across Welton Reservoir. There is no former Rio Grande power on the West Local on this day. All this power was once scarlet and gray! Including the middle GP40-2 which was once Cotton Belt as SSW 7963.
