I would guess the higher speeds aren't authorized as yet. However, they still seem to be going slower than the NPW Co.'s freights, at least to my eye. I'm just guessing at that, though. They may also be taking it easy because they have a "breaking in period" on the engines. If they were towed from the factory, aside from factory tests, the engines can't have very many hours on them. Again, just a guess.
Bob, I'm curious if the FRA has granted the desired speeds on the trackage yet, or if they're still mandated at the same speeds as the old trackage?
She's moving pretty slowly. Maybe they haven't gotten it insured yet and are afraid they'll break it. I wonder if it's got a "student driver" sign on the back.
Yes, nice documentary of SMART's maiden voyage onto NWP trackage.
It appeared to me at the end of the film that a pair of green lights at the side of the DMUs flashed between green and white (or amber) a couple of times.
