Pics 8 through 10...

A 21,000 ton monster NS 12G kicked into emergency and broke a knuckle at Mineral Point, MP268 this morning, which took a couple of hours to sort out.

The 12G is seen afterward climbing the West Slope grade through Cassandra this afternoon, with the NS Wabash Heritage unit as Mid-train DPU and an SD70ACu helper set on the rear...Dave W
