NS 38 "The Brick"
Title:  NS 38 "The Brick"
Description:  NS 38 "The Brick" sandwiched between NS #8736 and NS 36 on the research train. around 12:00pm me and dad were around Comstock and heard a bunch of scanner chatter at CP Comstock/Mp138 couldn't figure what the chatter was for, so me and Dad desided to check it out after we got done feeding the ducks at the local park. ended up seeing this big guy going west from CP Comstock around a curve towards Kalamazoo. so we played chase managed to get far enough ahead to grab three shots of it all were taken at a small junk yard on michigan ave.
