4014 on Archer Hill

I've read all the comments here by people talking about 4014 being "pushed". So I listened carefully as it was climbing Archer Hill. That diesel was doing *nothing*. It might as well have been a paperweight. 4014 was pulling itself, its tender, two auxiliary tenders, the diesel, and 21 cars. Yeah, it's not what would be considered a full load for a Big Boy, not by a long shot. But no, it's not being "pushed".

The one thing the diesel was doing was sounding its horn, repeatedly. Memo to the guy in the diesel: We did not come here to listen to your horn. You aren't the show here. Just lay off.
