(new window) Talk about "using a bigger hammer." They replaced a Hi-Rail truck with three locomotives. I'm sure one locomotive would have been enough. But they probably had the 3-locomotive set in the yard, and it was easier to use the set rather than take apart the MU connections to get just one locomotive. If you want to "cut to the chase," they start moving the log at 1:53. All three locomotives were still painted as BN, so these are local yard units. A comment points out it is a log pile, not a log jam.
Zack Boon comented that the locomotives are: "Left to right its a GP38-2, GP39M, GP39-2."
