Default A Fowl NS story

NS 285 got stopped by the Avenstoke KY Detector Sunday Evening,
dragging equipment around the 19th head car. Upon inspecting train, the
Con finds a large Wild Turkey wedged under a car in the
bottom of the brake rigging. They had struck said bird critter and it
had rolled up under the train, struck the DD gate and stopped the
train. Id love to see the delay report on that one..... At least Poor
Conductor George didnt have to walk 11,000 feet of train, but he is
already the subject of a lot of fowl jokes on the radio.....

It's obvious the turkey didn't get proper "fowl time".
