Reply to "Headend cars on PRR mp54 commuter train consists?"

If you wanted to have a model consist of, say, a K4, a heavyweight baggage car and 4-5 MP54 unpowered trailers with their pans down, I don't see why not.   Long as the MP54s are behind the heavyweights, it would work.  I don't know of any occasion this occurred in real life, but it could have, I suppose.  Such a consist might have required a generator car as well to run the lights and such on the MP54s...

During the PC era, GG1s pulled strings of de-motored MP54s using the pantograph on one of the cars for train lighting and heating.
