Wow, you got a ride with the cab-door in the corner-cab position? I've never been that lucky.

Yep. Was when a few PA1's were still roaming around, so a while back. I rode so often that engineers & conductors started remembering me & we would talk. The one at the helm of this train told me he did NOT like full width cabs. Something to do with the window on the storm door letting in light and the door sometimes letting in freezing cold air. Only got to ride one other train he was operating with the door forward both were nwk-wtc 8 cars, 3rd was some random train i got from 33rd to newport 7 cars.

An engineer who doesn't like full-width cabs? That has to be a first. Sounds like it was an interesting conversation.
