My favorite was the first trip I used a scanner. I was on 1 between Biloxi and new Orleans. We were traveling through the swamps and the train went into emergency. I had the scanner on, and the engineer stated that the train had run over a "wild boar". Apparently an air hose had been knocked loose. And someone had to walk the train. After a few minutes a voice came over the scanner. " are there snakes out here?". A few seconds later, "yeyup" in a southern accent.
