Thanks Randy



You're welcome Tim. Glad you liked it. Hopefully they can get the second one recovered one of these days. I enjoy seeing items from the past being rescued like that.

Thanks,
Randy

Just too cool! Thanks, Randy.

Reminds me of a 1958 flood event that led to dumping some 40 coal hoppers into the Susquehanna River to try to stop a disaster: Susquehanna, River of Dreams

Wow, creepy stuff that, and yet another reason why I could have never been a coal miner!! Don't think I would have liked being in a tunnel thinking that something like that could happen any minute!! Thank you for sharing that Fred.
