The use of a new speed control system, called Pace Setter II, has several important advantages in hump yard operation. The control system is extremely accurate for speeds as low as 0.2 mph and will compensate for changes in the train's weight during humping. Thus, it is easy to train new engineers for humping operations and wear and tear is reduced and fuel saved on the locomotive.
