Interesting looking trackage. I questioned their choice of 4 motored units of this size to run in their type of service. Looks like they need some slugsets, they probably never use anywhere near the maximum horsepower these can produce. Hope they got a great deal.

With that steep of a grade, I can't figure out why they would bother with the P4 model, even if they got it at a discounted price. Are trains relatively short and light on this line?

The trains are usually fairly short, between 10-20 cars. I can't speak to the weight.

Great photo, Steve! I've never been lucky enough to catch TR running, so I'm glad you're able to share with us what its operations and trackage look like.

One of the reasons for the SD70ACe P4's is cost and then also delivery time as the 6 axles took way longer
