Remarks & Notes 
In an actually somber image, I was finally able to catch my former comrades at DHART (air medical helicopter I retired from in 2016) and a Vermont Railway train in the same image. Not the way I wanted to capture said image, as today set out fine with several locations photographed of the GMRC train 263, Saturday slurry. Leading the train was VTR SD70M-2 431, GMTX GP38-2 2684 and VTR GP38-2 202. All was fine until the train reached the East Wallingford, Vermont, Route 140 crossing, where a logging truck failed to yield the right-of-way (activated crossing flashers in place) and was impacted by the track speed train and VTR 431. The ensuing aftermath caused a lot of cosmetic damage and critical injuries to the truck driver, however the crew escaped uninjured. This view is AFTER the patient had been extricated and was in the air for Dartmouth Medical Center.
