Had to go to my wifes work to help her pack up all her stuff. She is resigning from being a special education teacher since she is pregnant and she wanted to be in a less physical environment. She works in Anderson and it is a 1.5hr round trip and I usually spend my morning relaxing because I work 2nd shift + 4hrs OT. Today I would be using most of that time helping her. However on the way home(just outside her school) I saw this train leaving the 29th and Madison St. yard!!! The consist was 2 CSX engines and about 30-40 hoppers. It backed 9 miles to a grain elevator in Emporia, In. There was a man riding on the steps on the front car and there was a man in a red Chevy with a red flag that met it at all unmarked(i.e. not lights or crossbars) crossing!!!!! It was pretty cool! Here’s the pics!!!! Stopped for a second… Blocking about 3 crossings.. Not sure why??? Here we go again! Another crossing Heres the elevator. I didn’t have time to wait on the train.. Had to get home to get ready for work… If you look REALLY closely there is a guy in this old switcher warming it up to take over for the two CSX engines!!!!!!!!
