  At the Spencer Yard, the engine crew climbs aboard a pair of E6 diesels which have been serviced and fueled for the day trip across North Carolina.  Although a single engine E6 unit would adequately handle all but the steepest grade found west of Old Fort, most railroads used multiple units as a safety backup, eliminating the need to add and remove helper service on the hills and mountains.
