Meet In Gibbs Siding
Title:  Meet In Gibbs Siding
Description:  BNSF 5884 and crew have had a rough day for the first day of the year. The train in the siding I didn't get a chance to photograph but heard the chatter through the scanner. Apparently they a bad car in the middle of the train. The car needless to say now has 8 bad wheels and caused a shutdown of the line for 4 hours since the freight was blocking the main. The crew of the BNSF 5884 helped lended a hand in trying to fix the car as well as fix air leaks.
