Additional Information:

With all 12 pairs of driving wheels in contact with the track, this is pretty well our most effective engine in terms of pulling capabilities.
Some years ago we attached all 15 of our riding cars to 1605-1606 and pulled over 120 passengers in one train.

A rare sight of 1605 operating without 1606 in tandem. Passengers are the
Calgary Stampede princesses visiting during stampede week.
