Train of trucks

Comments Off

[Today’s run: 4 miles]

We ran up to the railroad tracks on Mcintyre Road.  We saw that a train was coming, so we waited for the train.

There was one engine.  It was pulling cars that had military trucks on them (Navistar, MRAPs), two per car.  That doesn’t seem like a very heavy load.

The engineer waved at us.

We ran back toward home.  The train was still going past that crossing when we turned a slight corner and couldn’t see it anymore.


Here’s a Youtube video which covers these trucks… made in West Point, MS.

It makes me wonder why they didn’t finish them at West Point.   Maybe the upcoming military contract cutback has something to do with it.
