    Great pics!

     

    Boy is that a long train. How do they calculate how many locomotives it will take to pull a certain number of cars? Is there a formula?

    I imagine they need to figure out the horsepower to pull all that weight. Two ACS-64 (#642 included) pulled it from Newark to Sunnyside.
