    The problem with those DDAX40 engines is the trucks are junk from being worked so hard. And the cost to replace those huge trucks is too much. So that's why they are mainly show peaces now.

    I was working at EMD - LaGrange when these monsters were built. Consider the problem of moving a 103 foot long (over the coupler pockets) locomotive down an erection bay where the columns were only 100 feet on-center. There was a lot of transitional technology in these units and they really didn't work out that well. They were a dispatcher's nightmare because even the UP had only a few turntables that could turn them and they were just too long for most wyes. Even the UP had limited mileage of track that could tolerate the long trucks. The air filtration was poor, and they ate power assemblies. They rode rough and the crews hated them. They were not as fast as you'd think as they had 88 MPH gearing. Two SD-40s were marginally better and when SD-40-2s came along the DDa40 was dead. Maybe somebody could take them on as an engineering project. Those eight-axle truck castings are national treasures. Single engine (around 4,000 HP), convert to AC transmission and have a good freight locomotive for straight runs. They seem to be in salvagable shape.

    Is 6936 still in motion on the Union Pacific today? If not, why was it?

  • Erica Baker
    Erica Baker 2 months ago

    That was near the Eton Junction. The River and Marceline Subs feed into that junction. The Marceline starts in Fort Madison Iowa of the Chillocothe and the Hannibal and ends near downtown Kansas City. The River Subdivision actually belongs to the Union Pacific Railroad and comes off the Jefferson City and the Sedalia Sub at Cole Junction northwest of Jefferson City Missouri near Rock Hill Road and Cole Junction and East Cole Junction Roads. Where those two trains are is an important subdivision for Amtrak. The Southwest Chief out of Chicago runs the Marceline and the Missouri River Runner runs the River and Jefferson City Subs out of St. Louis. Where those two trains were is the beginning of the Kansas City Terminal which is connected to the BNSF Argentine and 19th Street Yards and the Union Pacific Neff, Armstrong, and 18th Street Yards.

    • MiniMe943
      MiniMe943 7 months ago

      Siryn It’s an external sandbox. The DD35s also had them because they were unreliable, and this was blamed on sand getting into the electrical gear. So they moved the sandboxes to the walkways.

    I wouldn't mind seeing what a seismometer registered when that DD40AX revved up (5:07). can't have all that horsepower go into forward movement: there's gotta be some ground-shaking show-off too. Seriously, that DD40AX is huge. You see those SD-70s (or whatever was in front of it) and they look big (for us Aussies we have to go to the iron-ore mines to see anything like that size) but then there's this shiny double-loco-in-one breathing down their necks, reminding them of their place.

  • Tulyar 10
    Tulyar 10 Year ago

    The 6936 was designed to run intermodels at high speed. Working heavy freights at slow speed would damage the traction motors, that is why AC units have been such a success. SP ran a heavy train over Tennessee Pass using six AC4400s and speed fell to 1 mph but the ACs kept going. A lashup of DC traction motored units would have had most of its motors burn out. That is why Railroads use mainly AC units for heavy hauls. Hope this info is of help.

    • Boater Illinois River
      Boater Illinois River 3 months ago

      Tulyar 10 Three Phase Traction Motors inherently are synchronized, and reduce wheel slip without wheel slip control. Additionally the AC Motors require less maintenance. Motor “Burnout” is directly proportional to the amount of cooling air delivered to the motor and the class of insulation regardless of motor type AC or DC.
