Engines 6716 and 9193 continue on toward San Antonio. Fortunately the train is mostly empties and does not have that much tonnage. You can tell that engine 9193 (second unit on the eastbound train) has spent many hours laboring through the tunnels of California and Oregon. The grit and grime almost obscure the engine number on the rear. Disk 100
