Blair says: "A Wenatchee-Withrow turn, called extra to pull loads of boxcar grain off the Mansfield Branch, descends the 2.2% grades of Moses Coulee south of Douglas, Washington. Full dynamic braking and a big reduction on the air is required to keep the 45 car train under control behind two former Northern Pacific GP9s."
