Five units (an ES44AC, an SD70ACe, and three SD70MACs) work hard to pull 80 cars of sand west through Barbara's Gulch. Each car weighs roughly 115 tons. That's 9,200 tons for the entire train. With the power on the train, it should have around 2.2 HPT. Just enough to keep it slowly rolling up the hill.
