Exploding Turbo Charger: NS Locomotive Failure With a Smoke Show Near Toledo, Ohio.
**READ FULL DESCRIPTION** This was a great departure scene of an NS mixed freight departing from a red block untill some jack wagon goes around the gates and blocks my shot and after that....... The Un-Expected happens............ NS mixed freight: C40-9 # 8862, EX- CR SD70 #2573(ol' Smokey), SD70M-2 #2737, and C40-9W # ? The smoke was caused by a blown turbocharger gasket and the locomotive is burning it's own lube oil. it's a huge deal and the loco diesel engine can be saved but it needs to be shut down asap also It got all over me, the camera, and my grandpa's truck, but it was an awsome experience!!!

Retarded Truck Driver
It is amazing how easy it is for a big rig to get stuck. This guy was trying to pop the curb in a small hometown pharmacy. I don't really even know what he was trying to do.
