    1975

    Being from a small town circled by train tracks, I find the rhythmic sound of a coal train rolling across the tracks somehow soothing.

    Railway tracks to no where.

    1800’s-1905 Railroad Accidents and Wrecks - NE Rails

    January 25, 1948: Locomotive #19L, leading the Super Chief, loses brakes at Los Angeles' Union Passenger Terminal (LAUPT). The train crashes through a steel bumper post and then a concrete wall and comes to rest with the front half of the locomotive 20 feet above Aliso Street. No injuries, but the engineer loses his job over the incident.
