Last Car with FRED

Last Car with FRED 

D'Hanis Texas, November 4, 2019

I try to capture an image of the FRED (tail end device used by the railroads to monitor trains), whenever I take train photos. Worked out very well this time.

The 4014 was pulling a short train that included passenger cars, power cars (to provide electricity for the passenger cars), and a road diesel (for signaling and as a backup in case of engine failure).
