Two "guest" diesels. Must have had a serious grade along the way, or did they really need that pair, in case of...?
Movin' pretty good on that trackage!!
Ken, I think modern locomotives are an insurance requirement by various host railroads, albeit running DIT. The two B-units should have been fine for any grade along the way.
2 major grades that I know of: The climb from Buffalo Valley to Silver Point and the grade from Cookeville to Monterey.
