    Found it! At 8:39 in the video you will hear a squealing of metal on metal. That is wheel slippage. Though I think the engineer picked up the train very efficiently.

    False advertisement. The snow wasn't deep enough to get stuck.

  • Reply Hans Hartung January 22, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    The individual that shot this video, had no concept of interest of the video. Panning back and forth loses one's interest and is very annoying. Either take the video and keeping the camera pointed at a focal point, or not take the video at all. My apologies for this critisism, but I lost interest with all the up/down and panning left and right movements.

    i have watched it a few minutes ago and i am watching it again … the two engines i suppose are plowing the railroad tracks back and forth and i think twice or more , besides the train logo i noticed agp, atlantic gulf pacific … i suppose what i notice is a vehicle stuck in traffic for the train to gain inertia to move a little bit faster …thanks

    But he wasn't actually stuck or spinning.

  • Reply Wide World of Trains January 23, 2019 at 3:16 am

    Spinning at 8:34 as someone commented and look at 5:10 to 5:20 he was trying and wasnt going anywhere. Plus they tried before I got there and it looks like they got stuck and had to uncouple the train and use the power as a snow plow (thats when I got there) Why would the power have to go back and forth if they were not stuck at an earlier point? You can see the snow was plowed all the way to the train where the conductor was standing

    Amazing just how strong the couplings must be, that is one hell of a force on the couplings near the front of the train.

  • Reply Richard Bedard January 25, 2019 at 1:19 am

    I'm confused! I thought that the two engines were "helpers" and that when the other end came by there would be the two engines that had gotten stuck. But that would mean that the train is now headed in the opposite direction! Since there was no audio explaining what was happening, I tried to figure it out for myself. Obviously, the tracks had not been cleared of snow before running a train that size on it. Why only two engines for that size train anyway? I've seen shorter consists with at least four engines.

  • Reply Tom Tindall January 25, 2019 at 1:52 am

    Train was NOT stuck!!!! A normal plan for picking up cars or a train after a snow or ice event. Engines run over a portion of track enough to be able to get the cars rolling without a wheel slip, which especially happens around crossings. After coupling, they barely pumped air long enough to release the brakes which also work slower in cold weather. And even with that, the train began to move right away! You get some wheel slip even in wet weather when starting a heavy train, especially on an incline! Your theory that this train was "Stuck in the snow" is VERY flawed AND misleading!! Don't be so dramatic!

  • Reply Alan Vranian January 26, 2019 at 1:53 am

    May I ask: are the engines generating electricity to power electric motors on the wheels, or are they somehow connected to drive the wheels directly from the diesel power?

    Manual focus when snow is defeating autofocus. Plowing snow? No. Putting sandown for increased traction. Even sand powdered byvheels will help.

  • Reply kleetus92 January 28, 2019 at 10:37 pm

    What's more impressive than the non stuck stuck train was that they were able to couple in and make air across the entire train and release the brakes!

  • Reply nirvana896 January 29, 2019 at 12:31 am

    Can't say as I seen any wheel spin. Don't know if your mistaking the sounds of the engines for wheel spin? You have to build air pressure in two miles of train and see it on the E.O.T. Device before he could release the brakes and began to pull the slack out of the cars.

  • Reply Robert Heil January 29, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    Concerned for wheel slippage and entering a main line switch.

    Interesting that the brakeman/conductor was wearing a white jacket. Doesn't help his/her visibility on the snow. Not the best from a safety perspective. Oh wait. It's not white. It's an approved "safety" yellow. Sorry about that!

  • Reply Neil Lawrence February 1, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    Hate to comment on a video from 4 years ago, but…….No one was stuck here. Train started moving with locos barely above idle. Engineer being careful to make an easy start, keeping speed down as he was approaching a cross over switch in the distance. Didn't hear any throttle adjustment at any time to help control wheel slip. It's not the amount of snow to push thru, but the thin layer on the track surface that causes loss of traction. Once the loco has pushed thru there is the same amount on the track surface whether there is 6 inches or 2 feet of snow. I expect the moves back and forth was to spread some sand on the rails before trying to start, as a precaution. By the time all slack was taken from that long a train the locos would be past the crossing in the sanded area.

    Great Video. Never mind the critics. The armchair critics. The train was stuck. That's why the loco decouples and cleans the rails, and then takes another bite. Skillful engineer.

  • Reply Don Pollard February 10, 2019 at 11:37 pm

    It seems to escaped some – this speed (17:47) is probably the siding/turnout speed; the train will speed up once it is on the mainline.

  • Reply Russell Evans February 19, 2019 at 12:41 am

    I saw no "stuckness" or wheel slippage related to this train, just an example of great skill at moving a long consist from a standstill on slippery rails.

    As for 2 miles long——the best I could count (with all the dizzying back and forth zoomed in panning) was 118 cars, which makes this consist under 1.5 miles long.

    I love trains! (especially steam loco's) As a young boy I had dreams of being an Engineer. Wished I lived back in the 1800's. Many years ago I flew out to minniapolis <sp> to visit a friend for a few weeks and missed my flight back to CT and took a train. I forgot how long it took and how many miles but I loved every bump,shske,rattle and roll. Awesome vids WWT I subscribed! 🙂

  • Reply Syd Spoak February 22, 2019 at 2:01 pm

    LOL, I didn't see anything slipping… not even in the axle close-ups… I think maybe I saw (and heard) an engineer who knows exactly how to get a heavy train moving in adverse weather, with no drama! The snowpack on the wheels is all you need to look at really. My man used a little sand, and voila! I think Mr. WWoT was HOPING for some drama, and was disappointed when nothing dramatic happened.

  • Reply Harry Bitner February 27, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    Hello WWOT, the train was not stuck. What the engineer did was using the snow on the rear loco and was putting extra sand from his sanders, before he coupled onto the train in the siding. He never got stuck or slipped a wheel when pulling put the siding.

  • Reply George Murphy March 2, 2019 at 3:06 am

    Between the two units, there must be 7500 hp motive power.
    Probably just brake pipe hose, although the three auxiliary hoses may be connected as well. No HEP, so no 27-point jumper cables.

    They had to use the engines to plow the snow away, he had to back up a few times. When I panned away the engines must have gotten stuck because the backed up again as I panned over. And you can see the snow was plowed all the way to the train. They probably moved it some then got stuck so they had to uncouple and plow the snow some more, otherwise why would the video show the snow plowed to the train if they weren't already couple to it?

    Not wanting to be critical of the video, but I have to state the person taking this video does not know what he's doing when it comes to taking pictures of capturing an event. Not being a videographer myself, I know from watching this video, too much time was spent panning from left side of screen to the right. In addition, the person shooting this video, certainly spent far too much time filming in close ups of the bogies of the rail cars. Accents to this should have been showing this train moving these rail cars in the harsh environment and how far they have moved, then panning to the far right, where the end of the train should and would have been. But to follow some of the rail cars, then panning right or left and then again capturing another rail car was way to excessive and unneeded. The introduction of the two engines was a good point, and showing them hooking up to the two mile long cars, again a good shot. But when the train started moving, too much emphasis was placed on wheels, tracks, and panning around the scenery.
