The remote controlled SD-45's didn't exactly turn in a stellar performance on
the Pittsburgh Division either. Entering Bellevue, the slave units picked up
a stray radio transmission and reversed course, resulting in a break-in-two.

They were used in the 8th Mine District out of Pine Valley and, of course,
a Road Foreman of Engines was usually assigned to oversee their operation.
Sammy Noe, RFE, was on the slave units of a crew moving coal to
Pine Valley. Elated at the performance of the pusher units, he radioed the
head end - "We're up to 10 MPH back here." The head end responded,
"We're stopped up here."
