Runaway CN ore traingreenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
Although certainly not specific to 'our' roads, the recorded radio transmissions between a dispatcher and the engineer on a brakeless (no air) Canadian National ore train (referred to by Ed King in a recent TRAINS mag article) can be accessed at the 'Railspot' web site by those with realplayer audio capability. Quite a gripping account of a harrowing incident that points out the hazzards that can be found in the industry.
