Burlington Northern crew change near Grenville, NM

The Burlington Northern crew on this loaded train was running out of time on August 22, 1980. A crew van brought out a replacement crew and the train stopped near Grenville. As the replacement crew was getting out of the van, my wife noticed that one of the guys was walking around in a rather odd fashion. Seems that as the crew van got off the highway it hit a large bump and the engineer's can of Country Time landed upside down in his lap. He was trying to get everything to dry off. The train had engines BN 7220, MKT 603, 611, 614, 610, and BN 7170. Disk 87
