I GOT LUCKY! 2 Trains Pass On Steep Hill out of the Ohio River valley! A Train Going Up A Steep Grade way up in the air over a Huge Railroad Trestle. A heavy train went over a 2 track railroad crossing near the top of the hill and all of a sudden a 2nd train is blowing the horn and working hard to power a heavy mixed freight train. Both trains passed right in front of me and just by luck I was on the best side of the tracks to film both trains. A 3rd train passed me with an open boxcar door that Hobo Shoestring would have loved. That train went down the hill and I could smell the brake shoes. Then a maintenance of way grader went past and activated the crossing gates. After that I went to a huge trestle that is half way up the hill between the Ohio River and Erlanger, Kentucky. I heard a train approaching on 160.950 so I decided to film it high and dry crossing the valley. There was nowhere to park so I decided to film it from my truck and move if a car came. Almost all of the train passed before one car finally came up behind me so I had to move. There were maybe a dozen cars that I didn't get and it didn't have a DPU so I still did pretty good with it. We also get to see a closeup of the rail and a few pieces of broken couplers that are laying around near the top of the grade. This is an awesome video but I forgot to add Norfie and Chessie. I don't know how that happened but they will return in the next video for sure. Filmed January 4, 2022.
