Another minor gnit-pick -

IIRC, Gayle Cunningham was Eldon's fireman on the helpers #483 on August 28 and #484 on August 29 in 1968; Jim Shawcroft fired for Lee Otteson on the road engines #484 on the 28th and #498 (her very last trip) on August 29.

Here are Gayle and Jim departing Alamosa on 08/28/68:

Road Foreman of Engines Jim Pearce fills #483's cistern during the water stop at Sublette a few hours later, while Gayle oils around #483 and Lee attends to #484:
