Did the guy route the Broadway to South Amboy, or what? (I assume it was long enough ago that the truth may now be told.)
About fifteen yers ago, I spent some time on the NEC, mostly at UNION Tower in Rahway. One of the switch levers contained an etched reference to a leveman who'd mis-aligned that switch in a memorable mis-route some time previously. As fate would have it, the initials of the unfortunate individual matched my own, and I seldom noticed that lever without checking things out one more time.
