ATSF GP50 3826 returns to the main line after setting out a problem intermodal string at Newberry Springs, CA in early May 1993. At that time the hotshot Z trains still had a lot of 4 axle power. This power consist is made up of a GP60B unit as well as two B40-8W Warbonnets in addition to the 3826. The set out of the bad equipment was at a gravel quarry spur. This occurred at a busy time of day with a lot of traffic in both directions.
