Re: UP MOW equipment train wb on Altoona Sub?


Various loads require speed restrictions - one that's always restricted to 40 mph is indeed HOT - molten sulphur. Usually, but not always includes some pasty yellow tank cars. Travel as unit trains - with a buffer car behind the power. Many of the tanks will be marked.

Dimensional loads (extra-tall or wide) will also move restricted. And IIRC< should a Fred (EOT) fail or falter - trains are limited to 30 mph.

Did you get any video of RxR being rebuilt?

Last time the MOW equipment train headed East to Wyeville to drop off the MOW Equipment it had a 40 MPH speed limit.
