Description :

Winter in Georgia! Rarely, but not unheard of, it may even snow here. That's what happened last night and possibly brought CSX Q616-22 in the hilly section between Carlton GA and Elberton GA into trouble. Q616 is a northbound manifest. It blocked the main track and empty coal hopper train E148-22 (with mid-DPU) got stuck in the nearest siding to the north, Norman in Elberton. Decision was made that the two engines of E148 go out and pull Q616 out of its misery. Watch their story, which in real time took 3 hours. [© 2016 MBMARS Productions.
