Yep Calkins, that was me.

I was there for the whole fiasco.

I have photos of the rail car. What a mess. I am very surprised that the rail car didn't do more damage.

Some people are going to lose their jobs off of this one. Not FHR but possibly the UP. They didn't have a conductor spotting the last car on the track that they were pushing. That's a no no!

Just commenting on that ugly orange color!! We must have had the same problem with stickers... I try and find a sticker when ever I go out... boxes will be covered in the next year or so.
