Conrail Local WHSN04 has pulled the loads out of the Gilberton Coal Co. facility at Locust Summit, PA and is moving ahead to get a cut of empties on April 30, 1987. The sound was sweet as he opened the throttle. If you have ever wondered what two 645 powered E units would sound like, four MP15s would come pretty close. I have always had a thing about multiple unit lashups of "butt heads," and sound is one of the reasons.
