IC 1007?

Postby CN Sparky » Wed Dec 15, 2010 2:56 am

Anyone seen it in the last few days?

Apparently it has just been released from Quality Rail, after undergoing some mods... I believe it's got DPU stuff onboard now. Curious to see if QRS painted it to CN colours or not, among other things...

Where in the world did they put the DP screens? Like the 1000's aren't cluttered enough already...

No idea. I haven't seen any drawings of where it was even proposed... kinda curious. If (when?) I see it, I'll take some pics for all to see.

Someone managed to catch IC 1008 yesterday.. looks like it's been released from the DP mods too, notice the red end-of-train marker light above the ditch light:

Looks like a whole slew of them have been released now. No repaints..

IC 1000, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004 are all out and about. I saw pics of 1001-1004 together.. all still wearing Death Star paint, but with DP marker light boxes welded above the ditch lights.

Okay...

"Stupid Question Time" from your moderator...

DP? Dedicated Pusher? Not sure I've heard the term before (and I'm sure I'll have a Homer Simpson-esque "D'oh!" moment when I hear the definition).

Distributed power, which refers to helper units controlled remotely by the engineer in the lead locomotive.

Looks like they made a bracket to hang it from the side of the control stand. See attached pic.

Appears to have the Wabtec Fastbrake handles now, no longer the Epic 2 brakes. Could be wrong, I didn't get to see inside the brake compartment. And the spot where the old Epic 2 screen was is plated over, the plate size looks like it might be where the PTC screen will end up for 2015?

M30141D-17 arrived into Cloverbar Yard in Edmonton early this morning to set off. CN 8905 in the lead with IC 1002 cut-in mid-train. Was weird seeing a standard cab unit, one not in CN colours, working as a DPU.

These engines are getting a lot of attention. IC 1000 is currently on the point of M34791-20 and will lead in to Canada!

So, in addition to DP, these engines have picked up alerters, microwaves and hotplates!

They've put alerters on a few years ago, I think after the Anding, MS wreck. Not sure where they would put a microwave and hot plate?

Thanks for the pic! There goes the convienent place to put your feet! I would agree with the size of that plate, looks about the same size as the Dash 9 I had a few months ago with PTC mods.
