Yesterday afternoon I received one of those get-out-here-and-get-some-photos calls. The heavy rainfall caused some major flooding in Frankfort, KY that brought our railroad to a halt. When I got out there I met up with a man named Jimmy. Jimmy has a company truck that is equipped with Hi-Rail gear, which means it can lower railroad wheels to travel on the rail so we could get to some places further down the line. I was climbing into the bed of the truck when he said, “Watch out for the turtle!” He had found a displaced snapper, and was planning on some turtle soup. We took it out of the truck and got some fun photos of it. Jimmy was pretty proud.
