Remarks: Ever see a train not make it up the grade? Well 2 of this train's 4 GP's weren't running. You can see the conductor walking the engines to try and see what was wrong, but despite his best efforts, he didn't make it in time. The train made it just through the tunnel before it couldn't make it any further and it had to back down the hill to let SBAT go ahead of it.
Its just another, "Bad Day At The Office" I once had a 1972 Pinto with the same issue.

Excellent work on the pan and zoom. That is how you follow the action! You did such a good job maintaining the focal point on the cab thru that curve. I suppose those dead GPs helped to keep the speed down, LOL! Very professional camera work, thank you.

Yeah when I get KCS power I have to make due most times. I know I have stalled couple times with KCS power that was less than useable. Nice video...

That's gotta be a bad day for the engineer and conductor. Good catch.
