Train GQNEVA has just about climbed out of the Snake River Valley from Glenns Ferry. The train is at Reverse where the double track with a center siding reverts back to single track. Reverse is at 3,110 feet in elevation. I started chasing this train east of Glenns Ferry so you will several different views of this same train. The date is June 9, 1989.
There is an 11 mile grade climbing out of the Snake River. A helper set was assigned to Glenns Ferry to help heavy trains (primarily westbound grain and potash trains) out of the valley. On the headend are engines 9214, 9298, 9299, and 9293 plus engines 3717 and 3258 are shoving hard on the rear. The train has 100 loads at 13,050 tons. Disk 16
