Heavy Hauling
A bit of wheel slippage is noticeable as this diesel tractor pulls #35005 'Canadian Pacific' (belonging to the nearby Watercress Line) above the haze in the Heavy Hauling Area.
The miniatures are on the side, while the full-sized haulers take center stage.

A train of military surplus vehicles slowly pulls its load up the hill. When the right side wheels on the lead tractor began to spin, they had to stop and lock the differential, and then slowly start back up the hill.
