Re: [CanPassRail] Re: Via #15/17 and #57 at Montreal Central Station

 

With that in mind Tim, would the engineers isolate the lead unit and make the tester and the second loco do the work? Would make for a peaceful ride for the engineers... Save for the horn and bell of course...

Cheers,
Jon

The Ocean, especially at this length, doesn't really *need* even two units (especially with the rebuilds), as it has successfully been pulled by a single unit when the other had issues. Having a second locomotive obviously helps keep the train moving in good order and such, but it's mostly important for the Ocean because there are no spares that can easily get east of Montreal in a hurry.
