Re: Back to work
I've run U30's, SD40's and AC44's. Of coarse I like the AC44's best, lots of power, full range dynamic brakes, comfortable cabs. On the down side, they take too long to load, the independent brakes are weak, and they have poor close in visibility. For working the dock the U30s are better. They load fast, and have good independent brakes. The dynamic brakes on the U30 suck but I never use them on the dock job. As for the SD40s, the ones the LS&I leased were such junk from day one I can't really say.
