ES44DC weight 410,000 pounds(could be more). Length 73 feet.
Those HPJX cars loaded can be around 285,000 pounds. Length 49 feet.
Per foot loaded the hoppers are heavier at max capacity. To get them across the Soo they must be under-filling them.
These are rough numbers. Given the info that they had to space the engines apart, I was curious about the loaded weight of the ore/hopper cars.
Please make any corrections in case my brain failed.
