Herby Chalk Drawing Boxcar Art

We were returning from our honeymoon in British Columbia and driving in West Texas. There was little traffic on the highway, the scanner was quiet, and the car wasn't making any strange noises. Then my wife yells, "STOP!!!"

She had spotted a good Herby drawing on a boxcar and wanted to get a picture. This RS&P boxcar was at Hermleigh, Texas in August 1981 and you can see the Herby just above the arrow.

Not long after this, the RS&P tracks were torn up. Herby died in December 1995.
