On a sunny morning I was out and about, stopped by the Teck loadout. It was hard to believe it was January with the lack of snow on the ground. Whole different story snow wise "up the mountain". While there I was surprised with this south bound loaded coal train and the collection of locomotives. The two leading electric locos were likely working, but not sure about the diesels, the trailing electric locomotive would be "dead in tow". Diesels could MU trail and operate to the electric locomotives. If diesels were leading, any trailing electric would be dead with pantographs down.
