BN grain train overpowered?
A loaded BN grain train eastbound at West Burlington, Iowa on the Ottumwa sub in 1987. We again see the same train now southbound on the K line at Ft. Madison, Iowa.
Thanks for viewing.

Back when fuel was no big deal. On the Santa Fe in Los Angeles, every monday the eastbound 891 train woudl have double it's normal four "big jacks" as they were referred to. No message about isolating, every time I caught it all eight were on line making for a quick climb of Cajon Pass.
