Ed: "Another eight-coupled locomotive, please."

A new York Central Niagara 4-8-4 passes the Redwing Flour Mill at the head of a typical Mail and Express train.

Another 4-8-4, please.

Two eastbound freights clear the way for westbound Amtrak #41, the Broadway Limited.  Audio of the Broadway passing is from the actual train #40 during the summer of 1995.

Show me another passenger train meeting another train.

This is pretty-much what the fireman saw from the cab...

...just before both train and pick-up truck stopped "off of the highway"...

Other than a few chickens, no one was hurt.
