'Hauled' the Pullmans. Not directed at anyone in particular, but where did the expression 'dragging' stock come from? It strongly implies a sliding movement (and done against the will!) rather than rolling wheels, and also suggests that, say, an ECS movement is harder to move than a passenger one. Why do people not simply say 'hauled', 'pulled', 'moved', etc?
