I just got back from a short vacation to upstate NY and Toronto, while in NY I stayed at a B&B in Filver Springs. The old Erie main runs though here, the B&B doesn't mention it is across the street. Funny, the owner told us to close the windows and run the ac so the trains wouldn't be so loud. I told him I was looking forward to it! He then told me of a grade crossing accident that had happened a few days earlier, a guy in a pickup got smacked and killed, while talking on his cellphone. I was told he was talking to his brother, who heard a loud crash then silence. That had to be an awful feeling! That night I heard 4 trains go by, they blew for a grade crosing while passing by, it was loud! Funny too, I had dreams I could have sworn were real, only to realize that the RS3 I thought I had seen running light was a dream. I also heard a local switching out some cars at the Morton salt plant. A mainline train passed by while it held the siding. It was 4 in the morning and I was close to getting dressed and going to watch! Next morning I did walk over and saw the cut of boxcars and hoppers spotter earlier, but was puzzled by the SD70M sitting on one of the mains. Actually, I realized that NS is using just one main, the other ex main was not ballasted as recently. The SD40M was on that track, and then I realized it was the unit invloved in the accident. Not much damage, considering the lethal impact. Stay off the phone while driving guys!
