    Sometimes the back story is even dumber then you could imagine.

    This morning I had a delivery near this crossing. As I was leaving I got caught at that light after the truck in front of me missed a gear and came to a compleat stop. I was able to pull up next to the 4 wheeler in front of me to just cleared the tracks.
    As I’m sitting at the light I hear two guys talking on the CB. One asks where the other one is and he reply’s “I’m sitting here on the tracks waiting for the light to change. Sure hope a train don’t come”

    A hopper bottom had pulled out of the grain facility and made a conscious decision to stop across 4 active tracks instead of wait before them. All risk, zero reward.

    I do but not recently. I believe the last time I was up there was last spring. I did three trips in a row from Pennsylvania to BC. One return trip had me go down south of Portland to pick up a cannabis supply load bring back to Michigan.

    Crossing a RR track and stooping before you completely clear the tracks is a minimum 60 day CDL suspension according to the FMCSA. People don't realize how serious any RR track violations can be.

    Tanks on an extendable deck can be tricky if they don't weigh enough to take the camber out of the trailer. Lol

    Funny you say that. There was a dude there that claimed he designed the pump and it's special coating. I looked at him and said farmers have been using augers like that to move poop for years.
