Found this "fireworks display" from a railgrinder at night - awesome!

I saw what I thought to be a face on the second or third unit.

edit: more like the 5th unit.

Yikes, I was thinking the same thing!

I saw the face as well and wondered how someone photo shopped Tom's head to a video.

Reminds me of that "train on fire" scene in "War of the Worlds".

Imagine how many calls police and fire departments get when this monster goes through!

That's funny, I just spent this weekend in Mishawaka, IN while working the Redbud MX up in Buchanan, MI.
Fun weekend, especially landing on the 4th after dark!  Didn't get to do any railfanning or make it to any hobby shops tho cuz I didn't have my own car to get around with.
