    I live 4 miles from that crossing and this is the second train hit this year. There is a thread on the last one with video of the Amtrak hitting the truck posted from @Bud A. I believe. I was off Monday. I’m 1/2 mile from the track and a westbound train sat idle there all day. Not normal. This morning the haz mat roll off’s are still sitting there and the road is covered with oily looking funk. The crossing gates were still down when I passed it.
     
    D.Tibbitt and Bud A. Thank this.

    It might have been you @mjd4277 that posted the last one originally. I’ve slept since then. Lol!

    I immediately knew this was a familiar location. Maybe someone in the Texas department of roads should think about improving the signage or the intersection or something. @mjd4277 posted this originally.

    I would avoid that intersection if I were you, @SmallPackage .
     
    SmallPackage Thanks this.

    I went to a friends shop down the road from me to help with working on his truck today and guess what he had? The refer unit from the “condiment catastrophe” Great Dane. It helps to be long time buddies with the man who owns the local wrecker service. Lol!

    Not sure. The mfg date tag for the trailer is 2014. I told him he should mount it in the wall of his shop cause it’s hot in here. Lol.
