Did the Southern have mountains to run in the mountains?
Yes in part, but also because their light weight Pacific's were having troubles with the longer heavy passenger consist.
OK. For some reason I never thoght SOU had "larger" power!
In the early mid-20's they bought their signature passenger engines Heavy Pacific's PS-4's. They had their class Ms-4 Heavy Mikados, some Sante Fe's 2-10-2's and some 2-8-8-2 Mallets.
