On a comfortable August night, the inbound and outbound crew having conferred, the all-but-two loads 57-car eastbound train HL03 is now the HL03-2 as it changes hands in Creston, technically the highest point on the CW. Hence the eponym. Having relieved engineer Zach Hastings, engineer Ted Curphey will continue the trek and make short shrift of bringing the HL03-2 into Highline grain with the triga of two second-gen SD45’s and a SD40T-2.
