Re: PC: Hump Engines -Reply

Thanks Bob, I forgot all about the carbody on covered wagons being a
integral  part.  We have had a couple of CSX road slug units come into
Conway on occasion.  I think they were GP30s.  The cab is intact with
all controls still in place.  I believe you can control off the slug end
if you had to.  The first time I came across one, I didn't realize it
was a slug.  Boy did I fill foolish trying to start this thing.  I
worked my way down the walkway  trying to figure out why there were no
access doors to the engine room.  I finally came across one on the left
rear of the unit around where the air comp. is.  Finally the light came
on.  I still get poked at about that one.
