Remarks & Notes 
It's at sunrise, and a very late NS 348 (Linwood,NC-Chattanooga,TN) has finally arrived into the terminal after spending most of late last night at the crew change point at Brown, with no relief crew on duty. Saying that this particular morning was cold is a very...very... huge understatement, as the winter of 2014 brought the southeast a unforgettable polar-vortex driving the temperature down into the sub-zero range, and event that is truly rare, and unprecedented. With that being said this polar-vortex had took a serious toll on the railroad, with frozen switches and brittle rail. On a morning in the month of January where temperatures would've been in the low to mid 20s was ranging in the -25 degrees, only the brave like the railroaders would get out and do their job, and only the crazy like myself, and another locate railfan would be out shooting pictures of this particular train.

NS Heritage units without an NS liveried engine in the pic - the great "What if" without the modern day clue.
