Northbound Manifest With a DMIR Unit
Title:  Northbound Manifest With a DMIR Unit
Description:  I went down the hill and caught UP Train MNLTT 31 coming through MO Jct. with 526 axles, 85 loads, 39 empties, 124 total cars, 12,278 tons, and 7,474 feet long. I caught the train at Ash Hill the first time, they had their lights on dim, so I flashed my highbeams at them a few times and they turned them on and thanked me with hand gestures and horn signals. From here I headed back to Malden to see Engineer and Operation Lifesaver Volunteer Mike McGill give a presentation on grade crossing safety for my dad's driver's ed. class. Mike did a great job and really hit home with my classmates. DMIR 409 was built as SSW 9280 March 1973, so it's on home rails here on the Cotton Belt!
