NS 214 West by the Flange Greaser in Linden

Yesterday evening, I caught Norfolk Southern train 214 heading west past the flange greaser in Linden, Virginia on the NS B-line. Flange greasers are used in areas with significant curves to reduce friction and wear between the wheel flanges and rail.

NS D9-44CW #9375 leads NS train 214 west through Linden, VA on 4/18/2018.
