Hi List,

For those inquiring about the two diesels giving help to the Tennessee Valley's ex-SR 630. The engines are actually a mother and slug set. NS #716 is a slug unit. Slugs do not have diesel engines. They get their electric from the "mother" engine. The way I understand it is that the GP40-2 and slug have the starting tractive effort two GP 40-2's without the fuel consumption of two diesel engines.

Thank you Mr. Walt Gay for the videos!

John Hecker
