Railfanning March 13 2017

Heard there was a derailment around Black Mountain on the KV&O so I know they would be getting the big hook out. Anyone who knows the KV&O knows that they keep the hook stored inside and it hardly ever seen unless something like this happens. Thought it would be a good time to see it out and about. Was surprised when I got to the yard and seen it sitting in the yard waiting for an engine to be brought around and coupled on. Fuel and a water tender on one end and a crane tender on the other.
