CR GP35 2304 and GP38 7799 apply the brakes as they assist a mixed freight down Horseshoe's track 2 on May 22, 1977.

Awaiting the arrival of RDG 4-8-4 #2102 later that day, the large crowd of steam fans was overly interested in the constant black and blue GP and SD consists pushing up or braking down the Curve. Those consists would be rare in the not too distant future.
