Cool! I was told the cars were empty. Thanks! Still made easy work out of them, and the diesel did not appear to be helping as it went by.

Please clarify, as to "cement", i.e. powdered "cement", or some other compound?

Nice but not near as cool as UP 3985 dragging double stacks up the hill back in '90.

Really is a very nice shot, have to admit that the 4014 looks damn good.

Probably Portland cement powder produced under the standards of ASTM C150.

Edit: Probably out of the Eagle Materials plant at Laramie.

I am not Ed.
I was standing right next to HGG when he took that photo ..

I hope some of the video takers that were filming next to us will post their work. The roar was almost deafening when 4014 went by.
