Southern Pacific freight train symbol RVMEY at Montague, California

Time has run out for the crew on train RVMEY on November 5, 1976. The crew has set the interchange traffic to the house track for the Yreka Western, set the helper power over to the siding and is waiting for a relief crew. Although the train is mostly empties, it is better to have helper engines cut in about two-thirds deep as the train has about 100 cars and will soon be going over the curving 3.3 percent grade over the Siskiyou Mountains The morning started off clear but clouds have moved in and it will soon start raining.
