Physics...when you tack 50 cars of freight onto another 100+ of ethanol empties, and ask them to charge up a hill into a 30 mph wind...well, things are going to get interesting. At one point, down to 2.3 mph on the climb, 651 is just starting to find its legs again as it begins accelerating towards London. GE 1, gravity zero.
