Pacing Norfolk Southern 8 Diesel Lash-up

Pacing Norfolk Southern 8  Diesel Lash-up | Train Fanatics Videos

This is a rare glimpse of 8 multiple power units in a terrific “lash-up”!

All of the units look new except for the “out of place” Union Pacific GE AC44CW’s with their aging paint jobs!

A lash-up is defined as the use of two or more locomotives strung together in succession.
The term lash-up is commonly used by model train enthusiasts, however, it can also be applied in this instance.

This mixed freight combined a rare combination 8 locomotives representing 3 different railways and one anonymous “blue #2038” locomotive to move this mixed freight train.

Seen in this clip are:

  1. 8094 Norfolk Southern
  2. 7883 NS
  3. 3202 NS
  4. 5667 NS
  5. 5862 Union Pacific
  6. 6507 Union Pacific
  7. 2974 Canadian National
  8. 2036 “blue” unknown

Since the average weight of the these locomotive is 400,000 lbs., these 8 locomotives represent over 1600 tons of rolling might!
