In all the years I've lived in the area, I've never seen mid train helpers on anything here before. This I gotta see!

The interesting part will be if they still stop for pushers or if they'll try to take Q326 up the hill 2+1. If all 3 are AC units its possible they could make it with 15,000 tons. I've seen the 18,000+ ton coal trains make it with just 3 units, but the conditions were ideal.
