I just picked up a D600... so to test it, I took some video of passing Rail Runner and Amtrak trains today at Noon.

Quiet Zones... this one lasts from Downtown ABQ to to Sandia Pueblo. 14 Miles in all.

Great video. Question, why is it passenger trains always look overpowered. I mean 2 engines with only 4 cars?

Rail Runner uses 2 units only on peak NB express runs to maintain speed up 3% Waldo Canyon to Santa Fe. Right, Duderino?

Was the Amtrak video taken at the Los Ranchos station? I was there last month. I missed seeing #4 by a few minutes.

Good thing speeds are down to 79 over there compared to when they used to do 90! Nice video!

The 5 car-Two Locomotive set is used for the Express train and getting it both up the hill and to accelerate quickly out of stations. It also needs five cars for the Monday-Friday Express Service. The reason it's on the Saturday train was for the summer weekend trains during the summer.
