Yikes! Either that was a consist of empties, or that no-nonsense switcher had his Wheaties for breakfast. Great video, thanks for posting!

Indeed...tell me that was a unit train of styrofoam products. He looked as if he had a good roll on them even, no lugging.

I suspect empties as I believe the 291 class to be only 1400HP

Was this video being run backwards ?

No, this is a normal video! - No tricks or modifications!
This unit is downgeared to get more tractive effort and so loosing in the maximum speed, the transmission is diesel-hydraulic.
