Great shot of the rail grinder!

One time a friend and i were doing some trackside camping and one of these came through in the dead middle of the night. Being awoken by a rail grinder crawling along the tracks making a racket and lighting up everything with all of its lights was really really scary actually. We were a little paranoid too because we knew that we were technically on railroad property. When this thing crawled by and lit up our tent like daylight we really freaked, we ended up packing up right then and riding our bikes into the nearest town and sitting on a bench by the tracks until morning! ahh the memories!
