We are at Greensburg PA. on the ex-PRR Pittsburgh mainline. The conversion with the crew and the dispatcher reported problems with the lead locomotive. Just east of the station platform, the heavy ore train comes to a stop to have the problem looked at by a Conrail employee. After a lengthy stay, the heavy train gets moving again. The four Conrail (6755-6759-6492-6049) locomotives ease the train into motion. I Varity of nice little friction bearing ore jennies pass with PRR-PC-CR markings. By the time the rear end helpers pass, the two Conrail SD40-2's, 6359-6364 roar past in the eight notch, but still at a slow 20 mph, and trying to get up to track speed. For those familiar with the location, take note of the cars east off in the distance on the SW secondary. Video taken 9/09/1991
