Engineering oddities (Worlds most powerful grill)
Author: highballmfr

Sometimes the Engineering engineers get a little carried away. On a beautiful fall day last year when we were testing, the (external)dynamic brake grids ended up being used to grill lunch.
Yes, the hotdogs were eaten.

Great post! Please post a few more pix of those old SD60MACs that you have out there on the DOT Test Track! Do you folks still have a U30C and GP40-2? Photos of those would be especially appreciated. Thanks!

Cheers,
Harry

I particularly enjoy "engineering" aspects of railroads and trains - the technology, components, design, manufacture, testing, etc. There doesn't seem to be an appropriate category to post such topics - perhaps we need a "Technology" discussion group?

What is he wired up to? The dynamic circuit and put the unit into self-load-test perhaps?

When time permits, I'll post a picture of the SD60MAC's. We still run them daily.

LOL! Quite possibly the greatest railroad oddity I have ever seen!

Is this at the test track east of Pueblo, CO. Whether it be steam cooking a can of beans with the tricocks, a can of spaghetti on the exhaust manifold or dynamic brake dogs nothing can keep a hungry railroader from his food. Any of you who have met me will attest.

If you want to find out how to cook your meals on a loco, go to google search and type in manifold menus. this guy has it down pretty go.
