On page 98-99 of Stephen Puleo's excellent book https://www.amazon.com/Dark-Tide-Great-Boston-Molasses/dp/0807050210/ he describes how an Elevated train passed over that section of track literally seconds before it collapsed, and how a brakeman ran back down the track and flagged down the next northbound train and prevented it from crashing down in the wrecked area.
