Five EMD's balls to the wall... RTC took away 431's light East of Georgetown for a reason that still doesn't make any sense to me, this lead to 431 coming to a stop just short of the Niagara escarptment. 431 poured it on trying their best to crest the 79 car train but fell short stalling soon after. Rescue power was sent, (4095-2303) as those two units plus 3030-3393 (dead) and 3054 are seen here screaming in full notch 8 around the curve, what an amazing sound.
