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.

Therefore, one train has to hold a Wyomissing Jct. for the other to pass through the wye before continuing. In this case, both trains were headed to
