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.
