Approaching Craigellachie in the Monashee mountains.
The only kind of EOT I like. This one on the end of this coal hauler.
Originally these pictures were stored at Zing which is now defunct.
I am re-uploading them here
Heres my favourite EOT
Robin, I agree with you, we miss them out here in the west, they are now a rareity. There is one short line here that still has the working cabs on, but I hear they will not be here long.
We get plenty of coal drags through here, lately they have been all the new engines. They started out having two or three on the head end with eot at other. Then they changed and had one engine at the head and one in the middle, lately they have had one on the head end and one on the tail end facing the oposite way, looks strange. Very rarely do they stop going through here so have not had a chance to jump in and ask if the tailing unit is actually being used as a pusher or just in tow and used for air supply. Have a few pics but having problems posting, think it is the program, going to buy a new program soon, a less complex one, so will hopefully posting soon. Happy railroading Ron..
