(1) The Saga of SBSE
Title:  (1) The Saga of SBSE
Description:  Westbound SBSE blasting through the cut at the "art colony". The engineer had just called the DS to inform him that the third unit quit loading, although it was still running. The ENGR said he doubted he'd make the hill without doubling or a push, but said he'd try to keep it moving as long as he could. After this shot I jumped in the vehicle and....

(2) The Saga of SBSE
Title:  (2) The Saga of SBSE
Description:  ...took off after him on the access road along the track. Caught him quickly and paced him for a bit in the vicinity of MP 129, vehicle speedo showed a speed of 7-8 mph. Moved up to the headend to hear the "music" emanating from the two lead SD40's as they were howling their guts out in Run 8. Now I'm admittedly a big ALCO fan, but the sound of those EMD's fighting to overcome gravity WAS breathtaking! SBSE is passing signal 129.91 at this point.

(4) The Saga of SBSE
Title:  (4) The Saga of SBSE
Description:  Another sprint ahead gets me up to Bancroft and across the tracks well ahead of him. Looks like he's gained a little more speed, up to about 10 mph. We'll make a run for Ballou's, about 4 1/2 miles further up the hill, to see if he makes it that far.

Title:  (5) The Saga of SBSE
Description:  Well, he made it to Ballou's, AND he's getting a break here as the grade "eases off" to 1.2 %. Good thing as he STILL has one more short stretch of 1.6 % about a mile ahead, but he'll make it. And I have a little more respect for the products of EMD.
