Just east of the east switch of Fraser finds EMD's testing special on the roll, slowly, up the grade. All the UP units in this shot are in full dynamics while the two EMD prototypes are in Run 8. The purpose of the testing is to check the units performance at high altitude, to see how much exhaust is produced when fully loaded and pulling, and test their performance at low speeds. The consist here is only making 12 MPH.
