Grand River Railway - Horizon Rail GP10 #8420 - Loading Salt
Author: cornerfieldhobby

Today a friend who works for Grand River let me know they were running today. Well I got plenty of video and photos, but I decided to upload this. This is by far the best K5LA I have heard since seeing the NS OCS.

Bob, thank you so much. Yea, I tried my best. That K5LA horn was something else.

Plus here are some more photos. Had to get a photo of that original C&NW PS-2 hopper.

So have they gotten rid of the two switchers that were painted in the B&O inspired paint scheme that they started out with?

Love those videos. That's a part of RR operations you don't get to see much of.

Thank you to everyone who replied. I tried my best to video and photograph at the same time for this session. It was fun to watch the loading of the salt and closing and opening the hatches. Also I had no clue until this morning that I made VOTD.

This is really cool! What a great catch. You don't get to see salt being loaded everyday!
