      Empty CSX coal train with 2 dpu's

      I had some free time after work today, so I brought out the coal train. I wanted to see how the new dash 9 and the sd40-2 would act as pushers. I know I don't have very many coal cars, but I was curious. After adjusting some settings, I was surprised at how well everything ran together. It's time for a couple more batteries and several new coal cars! :D

      Thanks Dale!

      That would make for some really interesting operating sessions!

             I'm sure two engineers could handle a 30 car coal train. The rear engine could start pushing after the front engine started moving.

        Nice video Matt , the low camera angles make the train look very realistic. Gotta loose the blue boxcar though .

      Dale, the revolution does it all for you. No need to have two engineers.......but that would be interesting! :D


      Thanks Andy!

       

      Thanks Mike! Long time no see! Yeah, I haven't been up to Robby's to get a battery yet. I may just wait until his open house and get it then.
