Eastbound Espee Piggybacker Cresting Mohawk Pass in Arizona
SP 8367 (SD40T-2) leads 3 other units on what appears to be an eastbound piggyback train as it crests Mohawk Pass holding the mainline at Mohawk, AZ. The bridge in the distance marks an older Southern Pacific alignment over the pass. The trailer immediately behind the locomotives appears to be owned by Schneider Transport. Santa Fe and J B Hunt inaugurated cooperation between railroads and over-the-road truckers (remember Quantum service?).. It was not too much later that the Southern Pacific and Scneider were similarly working together. Today, of course, containers from both these truckers often share the same double stack wells all over the country.
