Battling the grade

CSX 7314 and CSX 8131 battle the steep grade of Washington Hill very underpowered for well over 90 autoracks. A few miles from this location the locomotive overheated and the train stalled.
Thats for sure! Dispatcher was talking today and said they have been sending nothing but junk power back and forth lately on this line. Makes his job difficult since trains keep stalling from being underpowered.

Really like the composition! Everything is big! Big power, autoracks, trees...
