I have heard from several engineers that the ES44C4, which is an A1A-A1A unit, is not ideal for heavy trains. It is more designed for fast trains in relatively flat terrains. Looks like the power desk in Denver may have agreed today as two ES44ACs and an SD70ACe lead this loaded sand train west at Leyden.
