Four UP SD40-2's throttle up
Author: BrianA

From 7-18-92, this is southbound UP stack train TAEV (Tacoma Evergreen) on Napavine Hill nearing Napavine, WA on Seattle-Portland main line with SD40-2's 3696/3138/3810/3459.  Running on a yellow block following a train ahead they get a green coming around the curve.

Love the low angle of your position . . really magnifies the power of the image as the engines throttle up . . .

If God was a locomotive engineer, my money says he'd want SD40-2s on his train. Simply THE best locomotives ever built to date.

Don't forget EMD's SD-45-2's.....they were pretty awesome, too, ran fast and did well.

Brian, thanks for sharing a really good video.  Those 40-2's sounded really good throttling up!

Great video, thank you. Was that a Southern Pacific stack car? Just an SP guy. Have a great day!
