Q603 Southbound at Folkston, Ga. on June 17, 2010 at 7:40 p.m.

Train goes into emergency due to an air hose separation at the 15th car, then a knuckle rips through an air hose on the 35th -36th cars causing separation of the train near Love Street crossing and then coming to a stop, while the first 35 cars with engines continue on for another 100 feet or so.

Initially all three road crossings were blocked until the head end moved up to unblock Martin Street.
The remainder of the train, 67 cars, were still at the turnout on track 1 on the Jesup Side.

While it is a common occurrence for trains to break knuckles, not many break them near one shooting the video.

The next two hours Q603 would remove the tanker (the 35th car) and put it in the storage track at Folkston and then back up and re-couple and then get going to Lakeland, Fla. around 9:50 p.m.
