Santa Fe Railway empty Joe City coal train at Lupton

Santa Fe Railway empty Joe City coal train at Lupton

Train CJCDN (the Joe City coal) is returning east with empties on May 31, 1989. The train has engines 5151, 5162, 5035, and 5023. This was taken from the eastbound lanes of I-40 just after it has crossed over the tracks at Lupton. I am in New Mexico and the train is in Arizona. The train will go up the Defiance spur and load at the North Tipple (the DN in the symbol). For your information the price of regular gas at the Exxon truck stop in Lupton was $1.09 a gallon. The elevation here is 6,150 feet. Disk 66
