Englewood Rwy 302 pulls out a string of empty logging dollies at Beaver Cove on August 10, 2012.

Englewood Railway SW1200R 302 pulls out a string of empty logging dollies from the unloading area at Beaver Cove, BC on August 10, 2012. After the empties have cleared, the locomotive will push the loaded log cars into the unloading area. It will then keep the caboose, run back to the front of the empties and head back up to the handoff or reload areas. These locomotives have dynamic brakes which is rare for an SW1200. In addition, three of the four locomotives have had their original engines replaced with Caterpillar diesels rated at 1500 hp. They have a unique sound when underway.
