Remarks & Notes 
Sometimes a GP38-2 Isn’t Enough

While I don’t recall the exact problem, the crew of a Conrail local switching a readi-mix concrete plant in Bowie, Maryland encountered an issue with a Reading covered hopper, possibly a knuckle that wouldn’t open. To help correct the situation, the crew enlisted the aid of the concrete plant’s front-end loader, shown here positioning itself against the balky car.
