CP Revelstoke

Just watched a container train going west with unusual engine spacing (at least to me)  .    It was  1+1+1+1.  Is that a normal thing?

It's also makes running fun for the engineer....particularly when the fence it up!

I can't remember if YT links are allowed here, but in any case if you do a search for

Monster CP Rail Train On the Big Hill in Field B.C.

you will find a video of a 2x1x1x1 DPU'ed train working up Kicking Horse Pass near one of the avalanche chutes that is visible from the highway with 161 stack "wells" and 23 auto racks. 

Enjoy!

If the lead unit fails on this type of configuration, can the train still be operated with the lead unit controlling the 3-4 trailing DPU's?

Thx,
