SP freight train at Sage Hen, California

SP freight train at Sage Hen, California

At Likely, the grade increases to 1.4%. The top of the hill is Sage Hen (milepost 423) at 5,850 feet in elevation, the highest point on the Modoc Line. The sun has baked most of the paint off the south side of the station sign at Sage Hen. The train is slowing to cut out the helper. Note that the second unit (9110) has elephant ears. Recent rains have made a mess out of the area. The ditch with all the water is usually dry. The fine dust that normally covers everything is now a gooey muck. After three steps, each of my shoes weighed about ten pounds. I had to walk in from the road as the M/W road into here was impassable. Disk 21
