Three beefy K-36 narrow gauge "Mikes" are pulling for all their worth as they hoist a long freight train up the 4% grade towards Cumbres Pass. Tucked in between the lead locomotives is a silver flanger, used to scoop snow out from between the rails and move it safely outside the loading gauge. The background is still in deep shadow on this early October morning in 2006.
