    Default GP40X

    Besides the one on Stream-lines, has anyone done a GP40X? Also I keep forgetting was the prototype rated at 3500hp, or 3600hp? thanks

    I was thinking about trying one some day. Just for fun. But I think I am doing an RM-1 first.

    RM-1 is a SLR rebuilt Road Motor. Kinda like the CSXT RDMT's. Only, from a GP40/-2

    oh that's what those things are. thanks for the info. now I have a question for some people. Why do some people tell you to google search something, when in the same amount of time you type "google search it", you could type out what something is. I'm sorry to me this just comes across as kind of rude. And I know for asking this someone will probaby send me a pretty rude message, or tell me to leave the forum if I don't like it, so if you are save it, I don't want to hear it. and I know I'm a noob, but guess what, you were all to at one point or another.

    Pretty much im just one that feels... why take the time to post "whats a yadda yadda?" when you can do a simple search on the net and not waste time with reply. Rude or not, its a more logical way of doing things.

    EDIT: Although had I been awake and in a slightly better mood at the time it would have been logical of me to post a link to these odd engines. Seems we both need to learn a few things.

    Cheers,

    A RM-1 also is used for tractive effort, same as the RDMT's of CSXT. They are equiped with Dynamic Braking for use when it is in the lead of a frieght train. Normally there is about 2 of these in a consist with two GP40-2's. Sometimes it's RM-1, GP40-2, GP40-2, RM-1 or GP40-2, RM-1, RM-1, GP40-2.

    They are reliable, and all you'll hear in the cab is the scanner, horn, bell, dynamic braking, and somewhat the other two engines doing the effort with the RM-1's make better traction.
