You can go to youtube & search for "observed trials" to see others. If you find a PA National, you might see me.

Freddy, Is this what you do on the weekends?

What an incredible honor.

The video was amazing. It is an impressive locomotive. My wife heard the video from the upstairs and came running down to see it.

How does that locomotive compare in power with a current freight diesel we might see in service now in the northeast? I guessed that it would require three diesels to pull that line of cars.

Those coal cars look empty to me. Still it is very impressive.

Depends on the size of the diesels and track grade etc. but 2 or 3 would be the norm for a train of empties.

This locomotive when in regular service pulled trains of up to 18,000 Tons BY ITSELF. No, that's not a typo; those are the correct amount of zeros there. This was an everyday occurrence as they pulled coal to Portsmouth Ohio. These locomotives were best used in high speed manifest freight service where they could and did pull trains of 6,000 tons at 60MPH everyday. They also cost less to run and maintain and produced more productivity per train mile than the diesels they were compared against.
