Xstrata GE 44 tonner #25 rolls by in order to handle the switching of gondola loads at the Horne Smelter June 10th. As you can see, these switching locomotives are operated by remote control. There is a 2 man crew that handles the switching, one of which (the guy you see on the step) operates the locomotive with a belt pack.
