  3. Notice there is a New Shipment of T-Shirts in the works. Problem is I have limited space to store them due to having several cases of past Tow411 T-Shirt Designs. That means some of these shirts need to find new homes. This is how this works, This is being offered to New Supporters prior to July 31st. Choose any Level Patron or Sponsor Status an receive a T-Shirt. Since sizes are random the T-shirt may be random. Shown below is the Black variation, however the color sent could be green. If the supporter requests we will do our best to send the color choice. There is no guarantee of color. Also, since we are blowing these shirts out, current supporters can request Free T-Shirt and simply Pay Shipping & Handling which would be $10. If the supporter status is due, $10 will be added to the renewal. Thanks Here is a link to the store: https://www.towforce.net/subscriptions/

  7. En route I make sure the train traffic is stopped, on scene I confirm the train traffic is stopped. I do not go onto the tracks until I have confirmation. The train can hit the vehicle, as long as I am not hooked to it. I have know few that thought they could race to beat the next train. Going up against a train is a bad idea.
  8. After reviewing the images. I am not sure this is a Tow Truck. Sadly. the news media thinks anything towing a vehicle is a Tow Truck. I am sure we will find out soon enough, until then I will hold off on counting this as a Tower Down.
