Wayne and before the fire some piggy back's derailed and tore it down I went down with the wreaker there was a water line broke and spraying water everywhere making it hard for Brad to get the piggy back's back up on the rail

I remember when the train hit it. I think Steve Spurlin almost drove off of it when it first happened.
