Here's something you don't see every day in East Tuscaloosa. Norfolk Southern 340, which usually runs in the early morning runnning in the daylight and in the SNOW! This is the DPU shoving hard trying to push the train over the hill. It was going about 3mph according to the engineer. The train had went into emergency down in Tuscaloosa due to an air hose coming loose.

What a difference four hours can make. Norfolk Southern trains seen at AGS
South, Tuscaloosa during the mini blizzard. Seen are NS A38, 340, 219, 225 and
345. Take note of how quickly the snow disappeared.
