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.

A Blue and Yellow ATSF SD40-2 leads a Red White and Blue HLCX leasor on Rail Train 911 at East Talmage. They are headed to McBrayer to unload rail at the derailment scene.

NS 167 is starting to get back to track speed after creeping across the 10mph slow order at the derailment site.

The NS brushcutter works on the tail track of the Wye at Lawrenceburg...thats one mean looking machine!
