Remarks & Notes 
In the aftermath of an August 2000 derailment of a coal train, someone with a sense of humor, or perhaps some kids having fun, decorated the spilled coal load of Rio Grande 100-ton quad hopper No. 16346 with some yard flamingos. The train spilled a few cars into the parking lot of a coffee hut, just missing the small structure in Hotchkiss, Colorado, on UP’s North Fork Branch.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
