Interesting DP
Author: MacBeau

A 4-92-2 westbound was discovered waiting out a restrictive signal one intermediary east of Lugo last Tuesday on the Cajon Sub. The goat boat made for a nice addition to the DP seen passing through Silverwood on the other side of the mountain.

That’s not how it’s counted. That’s 4x2, with a nice short train.

I was wondering where your picture of the 92-unit mid-train DPU was... 4400 horsepower apiece, that's 404,800 horsepower...

But it's not the standard format that has been used for years now.

Who cares "how it's been done", I too appreciate the car count and it's still completely understandable.

Doe's not a restrictive signal allow a train to proceed at restrictive speed with out stopping?

Yes, unless you're looking at the FRED on the train in front of you.

It does but there’s a long list of reasons why we don’t always take restricting signals…….
