2642 on train 385 at Copetown

GE Dash 9-44CW CNR 2642 (serial number 52651) was built in December 2000. These are 6-axle diesel electrics rated at 4400 hp, 3282 kW with a top speed of 70 mph, 113 km/h.

2642 leads train 385 past Copetown on Sunday September 17th, 2006. I saw 385 pass Bayview and the scanner reported to 385 that there was a smoking axle on one of the cars as it passed on the south track. The north was closed between Bayview and Copetown West because of track work and while 385 stopped on the hill for inspection NS 328 was being held at Copetown West and 390 held behind that. 385 would take a long time to restart and climb the hill which allowed me to get from Bayview to Copetown to see it and the 2 delayed trains.
