Zach Pumphery General You do know there's a difference in "running" and "online", right? They were online like that lead unit is an EMD. 9/1/2006 4:35:19 PM
David Sanderbeck General There is a big difference between running and online.Online implies that the unit is making tractive effort. If you add up all those locomotive's horsepower, it's 42,500. That is way too much horsepower for just 54 cars. You'd pull a drawbar and get a knuckle. Also, let's talk dynamic brakes.... if all these engines were online, the dynamic brake force would derail cars in the train. I have more to tell,but it is insulting to my intellect to bother. 9/1/2006 4:50:02 PM
David Nutter General Great shot! 10/3/2011 7:05:52 PM
