My husband is driving – not me. Technically it’s called operating a locomotive – not driving. He now has his engineer license!
Watch the following video of him explaining the steps of starting a locomotive.
The train in the following video is an ALCO T-6. Series number 1016. It was built in 1969 and was ALCO’s last completed model. Here’s the tricky part. There is a 1017, but it was actually finished before this 1016. Got it? No? That’s ok. 🙂 And for the 2 guys that read this… It’s a 1000 horsepower engine.
– Video deleted – Sorry, but it was necessary.
