Weirdest Finds/Meets?

Post by iceman977th » Mon Dec 08, 2008 7:34 pm

So at a young age, finding some crazy things has always been exciting. Yesterday (Sunday) when I was on my way to work, we came upon a pair of non-widecabs (couldn't tell if they were Dash 8's or 9's, or possibly U-boats) pulling a manifest across the NS bridge in Kenova, WV. I rarely ever catch anything there, and if anything, it's a slow mover coming out of the branch line from somewhere within central WV. Then when I was on my way home, we caught a pair of CSX coal trains, one loaded, one not loaded, meeting on the Kanawha sub on the WV side of the bridge, then by my surprise, a NS train comes rumbling over with not two, not three, but four loco's on the head, including a former UP GE unit. I thought all of UP's units would have been painted over by now. Shame I never have my camera with a good meet or catch :(

So what about you guys? I'm done rambling. Lol

I'd say seeing "crazy eights" about a year ago.
