    Thanks, MAC!

    Yah, only UP could throw That consist together! ;-) The route is the "old ubiquitous" -the Port Ogden and Northern v5 ( beta-pre-signal) that I've hacked to pieces and rebuilt - It's still fun to run on!
    Seen below is same train headin south (west in timetables) from 77, which will pass on the lower tracks on it's way west.

    I seriously doubt that those turbines ever needed an assist from a steamer, but what the hey! It's soul-satisfying to see the mighty GE being pulled by the old dependable Iron Horse, aint it?

    actually...it has happened in the past. Just check the most recent MR which shows a veranda turb being shunted along by a big boy or challenger. Seems that EVERY so often those turbs broke down or threw a blade and needed helped along.


    There's something else in that pic that bugs me though...the turbine that's being pushed doesn't have a tender. (It's a veranda turbine) Am I to believe the verandas didn't always need the tag along tender?
