Thanks for sharing. Wouldn't longer trains be problematic in very cold weather?

Not so much with DPU'S. Better, faster brake pipe air. Easier to maintain air pressure the entire length of the train.

If it was a manifest train, that thing might leak air like crazy and run sloppy. All those tanks makes for a tight train, quicker air response and same braking equipment is always better. Still, they're a big pain in the ass!

Great catches. Did you look at the placards? Those tanks look like high pressure gas/LPG type cars? Very interesting power for sure.
