Remarks: How do you bring a monster BNSF Z-Intermodal Train up to speed on a 2% grade? Well you get 4 General Electric C44-9W locomotive and hope you don't have wheel slip. This is kinda of a rare sight of seeing all Dash-9 pulling a train. But never the less this Hot Shot starts making its way from a dead Stop at Bealville to making up the Pass.

It's probably just offline, not dead. You can only have so much power online at the head. I'm pretty sure 4 Dash-9's on the head are over the limit on any consist.
