RE: UP "Giant of the West" - EMD DDA40X Centennial, UP 6936
Very interesting post! I have seen the loco come thru the yard at No. Platte a few times in the last 5 years. I rode with an engineer over the Yoder subdivision, which has the only tunnel on the third district, and he once ran the 6900 series through the tunnel. The tunnel is on a curve, and no one knew if it'd fit or not! He said the conductor went out on the walkway and kept an eye on things, but it cleared the walls just fine!
