I've been a good boy.

I only thought I put an Alco S4 on the ground.

Seems it had climbed the rail while coming through a switch and dropped back on. Scary 10 seconds thou.

It was only the engine and a couple of light cars. In about Run 1 or 2

10 Seconds is enough time to:

Think:
What the?
Oh ****
Kill the Throttle

And realize you are still rolling, So we're not on the ground.


The general manager of the operation, pulled the engine a one car on the ground. As he told the story, he was loosing speed and kept notching up. At run 8 and loosing speed he realized he had a problem.
