UP 7274 eastbound UP loaded coal train         
UP 7274 slugs up Navarre hill with a loaded coal train. Normally this train had 4 units in a 2x2 set up but that's not the case with this train as it's just the standard UP coal train consist of 2x1. If one of the engines were to die going up the hill the train would stall, which has happened here with rare cases of "manned helpers" having to be called, that or also times have came where a train has had to back all the way to Abilene to "kidnap" local power
