CSX Meets the "Great Pumpkin"
Author: cinder

Eastbound CSX Q276 meets the "Great (CSX) Pumpkin" while descending Sand Patch grade between the NA and Philson signals in PA on October 17. No photoshop here....the pumpkin is sitting on a ledge about ten feet above the tracks.

They are off to tell the crew of the other train that they are not moving.

Actually, the pumpkin is Chessie, not CSX.

He may have had a meet and forgot to turn them back on.

I'm surprised the crew didn't call in a 'suspicious pumpkin' and have Homeland security straffe it with an A-10 :)
