Now, lets get this highway open!

Vic pulling #116 east with #5017 to clear the grade crossing. While almost all motorists were patient, a few clearly do not understand the lore of railroading and were not happy about traffic being halted for several minutes for the unloading.

But to sit in bumper to bumper traffic on the Long Island Express to go to the beach, that's ok...

In other words... They're motorist morons. :oD

I think William H. Vanderbilt (Cornelius' son) of the New York Central Railroad said it best: "The public be damned!"
