I agree with most of what has been posted here with regard to the consequences of careless postings and that is what I call some of them. I try very hard to be very careful just what I post here and anywhere else for that matter too. THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE.
Thank you for bringing this up.
OH in back in my working days when on the New Haven we were trying to maintain a semblance of a schedule with a single FL-9 and six or seven cars in tow. It was not easy and about the only resource we had was to come in to a station stop as fast as we dared to and still make a platform stop. I can remember hitting the end of the platform westbound at Stamford at 50 to 55 with the brakes set and stopping right where we wanted to and smooth too. Running trains in those days was an art and I enjoyed every bit of it.
