Remarks: AC4400CWs 278 and 244 crest the Sand Patch grade with 128 coal loads at 12:54 PM on October 28, 2011. As expected there was a fair bit of rear-end help needed to move all that mass; less expected, however, was the inclusion of an AC6000 in the helper set - the 658 to be precise, slotted in between C40-8W 7312 and ES40DC 5275. The reverse elephant-style trio stayed with their train until just before Sand Patch Tunnel, where they cut off and returned west to await their next assignment.
