Impossible, I thought only the Midwest engines had problems? Nice picture.

Today's Hiawatha trains suffered from dynamic brake issues and a frozen DEF tank. Good thing there's no 329 tomorrow, gives the shop more time to swap the engine or heat the fluid up.

My 30 some year old diesel pick up has a factory heater on the fuel filter. You would think DEF would have a heater on it like most new class 8 trucks have.

If you don't pay the Siemens Mafia, your locomotive will just mysteriously fail on the road!
