Eastbound Intermodal on Stevens Pass Part 1
Author: AmtrakPalmetto

I ran this Z-SSECHC9-26A over Stevens Pass, and decided to take some "photos" white it crosses the Foss River Bridge. Speed stayed in the 15mph range while climbing the grade. Enjoy the photos.

Details:
BNSF ES44AC #6238
CSX AC6000CW #609
CSX SD80MAC #806
BNSF ES44AC #6135

100 platforms
7258 tons
8490 feet

One thing I calculated is that a train requires 1.8755497kw / US ton to make it over Stevens Pass, at a speed of about 15mph. This is for Microsoft Train Simulator purposes only.

If they treeline was actually like that, it would make a great photo.

Nice shots, just FYI, there is a seperate forum for MSTS / gaming shots in the Railfan Tech. forum. Thought about running the Scenic Sub myself, now after seeing your shots, I might have to go put a train together and call a crew for Friday morning.

It is interesting in photo 6 that each traction motor is pulling single digit amps. I think you need to set some air before you stall out and slip back. (;<{b>
