How to spend Memorial Day Weekend on the rails in South Fork.  5/25/08

Here is a video of Doug Davlin pulling the 44 ton Utah Central # 1244 locomotive at South Fork with his "Mercedes"(Chevy) pickup.  The truck was hooked to the loco with a regular yellow recovery strap, which once the loco began to roll, had to be quickly cast off from the loco and Doug was given the command to turn right to get out of the way.  Two earlier pulls had moved the locomotive some distance, but it would coast to a stop.  This pull got it rolling downhill all the way to the South Fork Depot.
