    Default West Bound from Needles to Barstow and Beyond

    10,000 Tons. Needed to add helpers at the next siding. Punishing climb out of Needles at Notch 8 fully stretched with a bit of a squeeze from the single pusher at the tail end. At the subsequent siding I added three SD-40`s at the back end. This helped immensely with (fencing) the added DPU.

    Very nice! Nice choice of paint for the head end.

    Does anyone know how to increase the size of the Thumbnail pics? They seem quite small. I didn`t notice the size restriction in the editor.

    Yeah, you can open the door on the nose of the ES44's as well. Unfortunately it doesn't carry across the network, so if you have your front door open, no one else will see it open, just you.
