10.18.11 Five GWI Family EMD GP40s work north-bound up the old Delaware Lackawanna & Western mainline in Leicester NY. The five GPs are in run-8 as they blast under Covington Rd. Eighty cylinders working full out uphill with 85 loads of road salt, music to the ears. 645 cubic inch displacement per cylinder, times 16 cylinders times 5 prime movers equals 51,600 cubic inches. Can you say Chevy Big Block.
