    From 05/08/2021 at Wellford, SC, a stacker advances south on the former SOU main between Spartanburg and Greenville. I'm glad that the SOU's paddleboard whistleposts survive in so many places.

    I am fairly certain this bit of rail has done enough.... PIC_0489.JPG

    I rescued this cross buck from a railroad junk pile (with permission). It was originally bent up during a grade crossing collision and replaced.

    Most people get drunk, others want sex but as for me, I go Railfanning.

    One assumes that you're referring to the fire truck.
    IAIS 6988 is an import.

    This happened this morning in Columbus, Texas on the UP. Now how does one get their car wedged vertically between two freight cars?

    If one of those boxcar doors would have been open, the driver could have just gone inside. Good grief. I thought it might have been an electric car because there's no exhaust system, but then I saw what looks like the manifold and catalyst on the ground to the left of the guy in white gloves.

    No, referring to the whole scene. You know, not one of criminals setting fire to other peoples' property or anything.

    Old US Navy tank cars at St. Mary's GA - 07/22/2021

    I would venture a guess that these spent some or maybe all of their lives servicing the Kings Bay Submarine Base that is just a couple of miles from where this car was found.
