      Was the SP help normal? Or was the train unusually heavy that day?

      If you look clear to the very end of the train, you'll see that there is a private car bringing up the markers; SP brass! In cases such as this, the SP unit was protection against an F40PH failure.

      Great angle.

      There was a nice hill there that I used to stand on for trains departing LAUPT for the run up the SP coastline.
