CN 4136 sits enjoying her Saturday afternoon off in track HB47 at Huntsville, as some aggressive weather moves in from the North. For years the power for CN 595, based out of Huntsville 5 days a week from Monday to Friday, sat in HB47, provided with the electrical hookups as seen front and center. Since 2009-2010ish the ties have deteriorated under years of locomotive and caboose weight, to the point where the power now ties up infront of the freight shed on track HB61. In the days before highcube boxcars and a busier economy, there once wasn't room for the power to tie up in HB61, and I remember as a child seeing a double set of locomotive/caboose AND a 40 ft boxcar full of fuel/supplies tied up in this track most weekends.
