Dash 8 Shoving Platform
Author: erielackawanna

Back on September 09, 2023, moments after the sun rose high enough to light the entire scene, an Amtrak special move of ATSF 4-8-4 3751 utilizes a Dash 8 as a shoving platform (at least that's what it looked like, the steamer was working and the diesel going along for the ride). The 3751 would be displayed at the LAUS Train Festival. Next to the two older timers on the main are Metrolink retired F59 variations in Keller Yard.

Nice shot! Is that like 'any port in a storm?'

It's a bit more interesting than the 2926 shoving the Tool Car.

If you gotta have a shoving platform then one with good seats and air conditioning is not a bad thing.

Can we get a re-check on the year of this photo?  Seems like a lot of retired F59PH and F59PHI units in Keller Yard for 2009...
