*train is underway after 36 hours stuck. I know a guy that probably got the call to put the train back on the track

Many people in our town knew of someone, on that train.

I know that girl in the video.  Used to work with her.

...my stepfather used to be the only guy who could operate the big steam crane they used out of Union Station in D.C. to clear their derailments.  I don't know who they got after he retired, because the thing always looked pretty complicated to me. It's a museum piece now.

I used to tailgate next to a company owner that got called all over the Western US to "fix" derailments. I don't know how he did it, what kind of tools you would take in there or anything. I just knew his entire pick up bed had liquor and he was pouring freely
