HD: The Race is On! Two Hot Shot Intermodals Battle it out with Horn and Speed!

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Early in the morning on November 21, 2011, two hot shot intermodal trains 20Q and 24K both race eastbound from Harrisburg, PA to Morrisville, PA making one heck of a heart racing sight. Both trains are about 1.5 miles in length, and basically start and end at the same time! Also note the defect detectors in the beginning of the video: tracks one and two announce simultaneously!
