This is awesome cause my job as an operator in a coal terminal is to operate the locomotives, most of the time there are two coupled together or sometimes there's three depending on the amount of coal cars. Two locis usually 112 cars three locis usually 175 cars. A load of coal cars is 105 tonnes and the car alone is I believe 40 tonnes dead weight. Yeah the sheer power of these engines are amazing. Thanks for posting the pics I am also a millwright and a welder by trade so it is so cool to see how it works
