Are the grain trains normally a 40 car consist or do they do less every now and then?
I didn't count the cars but it didn't seem to have 40 on it. Mind you it was flying up the hill, being empty, so it might have just seemed like less.
I didn't think that all the locos were powered up, the GWU sounded like it was doing it easy which would explain what you said about a GWU hauling a 40 car consist and 3 dead locos easy.
2212 was definitely working though, the exhaust fumes and noise gave that away, I do enjoy seeing and hearing the old girls being flogged up to the summit.
