Here are a few pics taken Sunday and Monday after NS 376's derailment at McBrayer KY. Monday turned out to be a rather busy day after all the traffic that had backed up got moving again, plus a rail train and othe MoW work that was going on. Thanks to Randy Moore for loaning me a little server space for a few pics that where not RP material, while I resolve some issues with my own little piece of the web.
