Remarks: The Joint Line has been known to host some special and rare event, often unannounced. This however is a first for me. BNSF 4588 Is in charge of a high priority manifest to Denver, Colorado, however it had to stop at Monument, due to lack of power and worry of not being able to make it up the +1% grade to the summit. Dispatch decided to have the train on the tail of the manifest, a coal mty, help push it over the hill, train and all. With that said, the rest was just excellent! Enjoy!
Yeah if you didn't know that, you would just think it is one train with some helpers, but when the middle ones went past you would wonder why there is someone on board them. (Why did they ring the bell though?) Thanks for sharing!
