Union Pacific Railroad train symbol PF at Hermosa, WY tunnel

The power on the Pocatello Fruit (Extra 2832 East) is smoking up the north tunnel at Hermosa, WY on June 7, 1978. Engine 2832 is dead and the engineer is hoping that engines 3022, 3217 and 8033 keep lugging and get this train over Sherman Hill. The elevation here is 7,900 feet. The first tunnel was completed in 1901 and the second was added in 1918. The tunnels are about 1,800 feet long. Disk 76
