Re: LS&I GE's are still running
There are a lot of times when a boat might be delayed or arrive early and the dock is plugged (fully loaded). The dock crew might be turned to a dock hill. This means the Yard hill or Hill jobs don't need to run the hill. They are then given mine runs or yard work. The U30c's are kept off the hill because of undependable air and dynamic brakes.
