Good one Ivan! I'm surprised they didn't have good pics of the trains, cause they certainly are standing still long enough to get a good clear shot. All those coal trains in Newport News have yet to budge since rollover. It's been a month. I've never seen anything like it! I bet all our chemtrails here have just made the engineers too sick to drive!
