Eastbound Intermodal on Stevens Pass Part 4 (Last)
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.

Photo 19: Almost done yarding the train.
Photo 20: Yarding of the train is complete. Three tracks were used for the train.
Photo 21: Engines resting on the ready tracks.

That is all folks, the 4 1/2 hour journey from Mulkiteo has come to an end for the crew of BNSF 6238. The train has been yarded, and the engines by the ready tracks. Soon the engines will be serviced, another crew will arrive, the train built, and another journey begins onwards to Boise, Idaho. I hope you all enjoyed this series on Microsoft Train Simulator. Stay tuned for another series coming soon.
