Earlier in the day, this westbound oil empty stalled out on the climb out of Rocky. It only had two units on the head end at that point. A new crew brought UP 8547 out of North Yard for the journey west. Unfortunately, that alone is not enough to take care of the problem. The crew reported the (now) second unit is leaking air so badly, the train cannot be taken out of emergency. The crew spoke to the dispatcher and requested a bypass hose. A hose will be brought out of North Yard to connect to the air hose on the back of UP 8547 and the back of the third unit, completely bypassing the second unit. It will be isolated and, hopefully, the train can then proceed west.
