28.....INSTRUCTIONS GOVERNING OPERATION OF TRAINS IN ELECTRIFIED TERRITORY.
Between Peshastin and 1 mile east of east switch, Leavenworth, between 1 mile
west of west switch, Leavenworth, and Winton tunnel, when, for any reason,
single trains in excess of 3500 tons with three General Electric engines coupled
on the head end are stopped on heavy grade specified above will double their
trains into either Leavenworth or Winton and will not attempt to start train on
Chumstick Line to avoid damage to equipment and excessive delays. When helper
engine is operated on freight trains, conductors must see that helper engine is
cut into train so that not more than rated tonnage of the helper engine will be
trailing. When train does not have full tonnage for all of the engines, tonnage
in the train must be prorated between the train engine and the helper engine.
When necessary to make a backup movement on ascending mountain grade sufficient
hand brakes must be set on rear end to hold up the slack; then when ready to
proceed ahead, hand brakes must be released starting from the rear car first and
working toward the head end of train so the slack will run out gradually and
