I drew this SMART MP15DC (supposed to be an MP15DC) back in late 2015 WAY before we knew anything about 1501. Also, this is not the best of my train drawing ability.

HAHA, ok im on it.
SMART Green, although a complimentary yellow would be, dare i say it, smarter.
Alright Ill try it in photoshop. Do you mean fully green or the way SMART and this MP15DC is painted?
Nippon, MOW situations are different. I think NWP and SMART could run past the ungantleted tracks during certain situations, and my guess is that its already outlined somewhere in there papers. The order to shutdown the NWP way back when does have a provision built into it that allows for the operation of maintenance trains.
I also think Smart buying a locomotive is dumb. I have a feeling its overkill for what they need. They really could get away with a trackmobile for the operations facility for movement of DMUs and light track maintenance, and contract NWP for bigger moves. Then NWP is responsible for the big moves and rescues of down DMUs.
From what I understand, a locomotive could clear the gauntlet tracks. A GP9 is 10 ft 3 1⁄2 in wide and the Smart trains are 10 feet, 6 inches wide per smart paperwork. The gauntlet track gives freight extra room from the platform for stuff like loose cables, stuff hanging off a load, and other railroad what have you. I have always maintained 1922 could make it to San Rafael without gauntlet tracks, but i am sure that it would have to crawl thru the stations really slow.
Hmm good question. They could go as far as designing their own locomotive.
