NWP SD9 #4423 was the baloney in the NWP's locomotive sandwich for the October 6 excursion. This Caddie quit loading shortly after leaving Willits, forcing the train to climb Ridge Hill with only GP9 3844 and SD9 4324 working.

It's been a long time, but I'm pretty sure that California Northern rated the Ridge at 14 empties or 7 loads per sd9. SP did 16 and 8.

must be the GP9. Note the radiators don't protrude.
