Remarks & Notes 
About 75 miles east of Reno Nevada. The westbound California Zephyr was struck by a empty gravel semi. I took this photo withen 60 seconds of the train stopping. I ran to the front expecting to see damage to the unit. Not two superliners torn open with fire roaring in them. I was riding in the third superliner of this train. The remains of the truck that hit us are seen here

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
