Eastbound Intermodal on Stevens Pass Part 2
Author: AmtrakPalmetto

Ran this Z-SSECHC9-26A over Stevens Pass, and decided to take some "photos" along the route. 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.
