Op Session, Eric Lundbergs DRGW Tennessee Pass 5/11/13
Eric uses Live loads for both coal and iron ore. This adds a unique aspect when combined with his no 0-5-0'ing large wrecks rule. Even with all that weight from the real ore inside, this car still managed to climb the rail when it hit a switch thrown against it. The car was left in this state for the remainder of the session along with a slow order attached to the mainline trackage in the foreground. The car will be righted and put back into service after the session, the pile of ore? Eric leaves the wreck spills where they are, the yard area of Glenwood Springs has many coal spills coming out of the curve from the coal mine branch where past engineers hot dogged it down the hill and found out the hard way, real coal is heavy, and atlas RS-3's just can't stop the train on that steep grade if you get going too fast.
