This was the other train I caught yesterday. It was NS 736 with a BNSF ES44AC and an NS SD70ACe pulling and a BNSF ES44AC and a BNSF SD70ACe on the DPU.

As you can see, nothing has changed at this crossing since I was last out here.

abc 33/40 Jacksonville, AL Tornado Coverage 3-19-2018

Event Summary

National Weather Service meteorologists surveyed damage in northern Calhoun and Cleburne Counties and determined that the damage was consistent with an EF-3 tornado. The tornado first touched down west of US Highway 431 north of Wellington, where it rapidly intensified and widened. It snapped and uprooted numerous trees along US Highway 431. Several homes were damaged by the falling trees. The tornado proceeded eastward across Websters Road and Broughton Road with scattered tree damage. As the tornado crossed Old Sulphur Springs Road, two homes were damaged with scores of trees snapped or uprooted. At Angel Station Road, the tornado filled the valley from one side to the other and caused extensive tree and home damage. An electrical transmission tower line was toppled at this point, but it was believed that flying debris compromised the structure. The tornado continued eastward and destroyed the sanctuary at West Point Baptist Church. Additional structures were severely damaged at the church. The tornado entered the City of Jacksonville where it gained strength into the EF3 category, with winds around 140 mph. It removed most of the roof and the top floor of two buildings in an apartment complex. The tornado affected the entire campus of Jacksonville State University. Several buildings sustained significant damage. The most intense winds remained north of the campus however, mowing down trees and causing direct damage to homes. As the tornado crossed Highway 21, it caused caused major damage to the Merrill Building. It then moved into a highly populated zone, where scores of homes suffered major damage and rendered many uninhabitable. The tornado maintained its strength as it crossed Choccolocco Mountain, with winds funneled up the valleys mowing down trees. It caused major damage to a number of homes on the mountainside. Damaged continued all the way up to just south of the peak of the mountain. As the tornado moved down the eastern side of Choccolocco Mountain, it narrowed substantially and became stronger once it reached the valley below. Stands of trees were wiped out with trunks snapped relatively close to ground level. Perhaps the most intense damage along the entire track occurred along Hollingsworth Rd, where a site built home was completely destroyed with only a portion of one interior wall left standing. Debris from this home was blown downstream across a field with some evidence of wind rowing. Hay bales adjacent to the home, estimated at 800 pounds each, were thrown up to 300 yards to the east. Maximum winds at this location were estimated at 150 mph. The tornado continued east-southeast and downed many thousands of trees in the Talladega National Forest, areas north of Fruithurst, areas north of Muscadine, and to the Georgia State Line. The tornado damage path to the Georgia State Line is 34.29 miles long.

English lyrics


The night falls on the shoulders of a man who goes away
Besides the darkness he’ll take away with him a secret
Between houses and churches a woman is searching for who’s not there anymore
And in the name of you, how many people won’t ever come back.

Freedom, you made so many people cry
Without you, there’s so much solitude
Till living will have a purpose
I will live in order to have you.
Freedom, when a choir will rise
It will sing in order to have you.

There’s white paper on people’s pain and skin
Everyday the cynicism towards poor people is growing
But a sun rises at night in the heart of the weaks.
And out of the silence a voice will be reborn
Searching for you

Freedom, you made so many people cry
Without you, there’s so much solitude
Till living will have a purpose
I will live in order to have you.
Searching for you.

Freedom, without ever crying again
Without you, there’s so much solitude
Till living will have a purpose
I will live in order to have you.
In order to have you.

WAAY Huntsville, AL aircheck Rick Dewey 10 July 1969

Views:1030|Rating:5.00|View Time:23:43Minutes|Likes:6|Dislikes:0
Rick Dewey was the youngest DJ at 5 Top 40 rock stations, starting at age 18. At WAAY Huntsville, Alabama, he was age 20, working the late afternoon drive / evening shift, 5:30 – 11:30 PM, Monday-Friday (if memory serves). Note from Rick: “This aircheck was my last night on the air at WAAY, 10 days before the first NASA Moon Landing. Being my last day there, my energy level was sort of off the charts, excited to be returning West in a few days to my friends at college and also taking a dare from a local friend in Decatur to see if I could be the craziest (and loudest) that night I had ever been on the air. This was the only night it got this semi-nuts, but it was fun. (A little background: I had mostly lived in Decatur, started radio at WSHF Sheffield in 1967, switched to WAJF Decatur, KOVO Provo, UT [while in college], then a summer at WOWL Florence and WAAY [sort of the pinnacle for many DJs who wanted to work in radio yet stay local, as it was the top station in North Alabama in the 60s]; then it was back to KOVO before volunteer church service overseas for two years in England, and finally back to Utah at KIXX and KOVO before finishing radio in 1976, sequeing into freelance writing for my career.) Elsewhere on YouTube I’m posting an aircheck from KOVO 2 months after this night, and I might put on an aircheck from KIXX about 2 and a half years later, a MOR (“middle of the road”) music station, my 6th overall. But WAAY was one of the funnest. Note that they went all out getting the best jingles in the world – from PAMS in Dallas – spending in today’s money about a million dollars for the decade of the 60’s, I was told. We had a great program director in Glen Buxton and other great guys to work with like Jim Kell. The owner, Mr. Smith, was amazing to work for, going all-out to secure the jingles and talent to compete, quality-wise, with stations in much bigger markets, and letting us be creative. It was a fun, great time to be in radio!”

CR 657 Railroad Crossing, near Notasulga, AL

Signal on the left: 2 pairs of Safetran 12×24 inch lights with WCH 2nd Generation LEDs, a Safetran gate mechanism, and RECO LED gate lights.
Signal on the right: 2 pairs of Safetran 12×24 inch lights with WCH 2nd Generation LEDs, a GE electronic bell, a Safetran gate mechanism, and RECO LED gate lights.

After catching the train in Auburn, I chased it west over to just east of Notasulga, where I got to see it meet an eastbound train waiting on this westbound to come through.

This crossing was a high priority for me, despite having pretty modern signals. The reason is entirely for the bell, as this crossing features the only GE E-bell in the state of Alabama! As far as I know, CSX is the only Class I railroad here in the US to have ever used these bells, and they didn’t use them for very long, though there’s still a few scattered across the country on the lines CSX owns. A few other railroads and light rail lines probably used these as well, though the only one I’m aware of is a light rail line up in New Jersey. According to the FRA, these signals here were installed in about 2011, and replaced a pair of crossbucks. Just east of here is where a spur breaks off of the siding track and heads into a quarry. The spur crosses AL 14 (seen in the background) at a crossing with a pair of gated signals, though I didn’t get a change to record them, as I didn’t see any trains heading through it.
