A good fireman along with working together with a good engineer like Doyle will keep a clean stack as much as possible. It also conserves on fuel not to be putting out the black smoke. The 4449 crew is one of the top notch professional crews out there today with many years of mainline experience.

A very well done video, its great to see her out on the mainline doing what she was built to do!!
