Figured I'd try to revive the topic concerning my favorite pieces of equipment....anyway, I remember hearing during the Summer of Hell that a few P42s were modified to be able to do just this. It makes sense because IIRC the same P42s were on the GCT trains every time I rode/saw photo or video. I know they had mechanical staff riding the trains too but I believe that had to do with shutting down the P42s and using them as a cab car.
