Southern Pacific Railroad Milepost 1000 at Hayden, AZ

In mid-afternoon, the train for Tucson is being put together. Hayden is at milepost 1000, one thousand miles from Oakland, CA. One of the duties of the train from Tucson is to ferry locomotives between Tucson and Hayden. The train brings re-fueled units to Hayden and takes back those needing fuel and maintenance. It will take engines 6565, 6567, 4140, and 6606 back to Tucson. In the distance, you can see the power on the ore shuttle waiting to go back to Ray Junction. Disk 57
