I don't see any problems here that had anything to do with horsepower.
Red signals, slow orders and UDE's are just stuff that happens everyday.

Right, nothing to blame horsepower for.  I was just saying in effect, all that horsepower and he doesn't get any benefit of it.

Not a lot of TOFC. Symbol was bigger than what the train really was. Mostly a DVROM

I figured that there was a pretty good amount of fill tonnage that got moved by this train.
The Rail Blazer it wasn't.

I had the pleasure to meet/work with/manage/enjoy time with a number of those former (now UP) DRGW folks at Roper.   DRG&W had (and still has) a reputation of quality management,  excellent front-line employees in all departments,  and good customer service.  The former DRG&W managers I worked with as UP manager were all class acts.  The level of professionalism and pride-in-work of the TE&Y folks was very impressive.   I wish I could have had those guys cloned.
