If the AX-1's can't get power (sheared off panos, all of them, or the caternary's de-energized), how are they going to get moving again? You gotta get a few diesels in there to haul 'em to a station, offload, and then haul to a yard for repairs.

People will get pissed but the train's broke, gotta haul it off the line and get them on something else.
