Remarks & Notes 
This Fife based UP local ends up T-Boning a Wood chip trailer with their caboose, after the driver's ill advised right turn. A crowd of officials, police officers and bystanders watch as the Conductor (sitting) gently eases the caboose off the truck and to a perfect re-railing. Geez, crews have to go to a lot of trouble to get air freshener for these old cabooses. Click Here for a view of the caboose, after being re-railed.
