Southern Pacific 9010
The Test Run
Sunday June 9, 2013
It was about time for a test run and the visit of our Maybach consultant Rob Fern put a period to the decision to do it. This video from our friend Evan Werkema tells most of the tale and we cannot thank him enough for its production.
Here we have the 9010 crew, having enjoyed their trip from Brightside to Sunol under the skilled control of Rob Fern. And then, I could not resist getting a photo of the air guages showing a real, live 9010 air brake system.
We were pleased to find that the 9010 rides smoothly and of course, with the power being in the SD9, the 9010 is remarkably quiet. It was a wonderful, thrilling and satisfying day. And here, as one final offering, is a runby at Brightside crossing with Rob Fern in command.
