I have a question with MU’ed loco’s that are used for local switching. Is there a reason for this? Here in the Indianapolis are CSX does a LOT of local switching and they tend to run two engines lashed together on a regular basis. IN fact they tend to keep there local switchers lashed together all the time(parked or on the move). Is this a power issue or a visibility issue? Most of the time these engines aren’t pulling much freight so I wouldn’t figure it a power issue… Is it more of a visibility issue where they “drive” one engine to the location to switch then once they arrive and switch they change engines and drive back always being in the “front” engine for best visibility. Most industrial spurs are in and out and no turn around… CONFUSED!!! Some examples here in Indianapolis Heres a few that parked lashed together… there are two more sets behind these However in this case SINGLE loco headed into the switching spur forwards and once done had to back out and back to yard…. This one actually on the same spur as above BACKED into the spur from the yard and then left later going forward….
