Remarks & Notes 
The engineer on NS 951 has grabbed a modest handful of "Westinghouse" as his four EMD mounts heed the 35 MPH speed board through this 6.5 degree reverse curve at MP 179.5--just south of the bell crossing at Greenwood. The "Excecutive Fs" don't have one common feature of most modern motive power that would greatly improve their performance: dynamic braking. Engineers must rely on the "big brake" to help control train speed--a circumstance that keeps NS carmen busy changing brake shoes on the business car fleet.
