One in a series of posts of photographs that I made last summer.
The driver of this Norfolk Southern track car had authority on the Sandusky District as far as the mini plant in Bellevue.
That wasn’t the driver’s final destination. As I recall, the track car needed to get into the yard, but the dispatcher had traffic to run so the truck sat and sat and sat.
One of those trains was an outbound move with a pair of Union Pacific units in the motive power consist.
Those UP engines also overshadowed an NS high-nose GP38-2 that was trailing them.
I wondered what it would be like to be sitting behind the wheel of a track car and seeing this massive train coming at you.
It must have made for an interesting site provided, of course, that it was on another track and stayed on that track.
