Default What Not To Do...

Working the hump job, was told to go pull a receiving track for the dual hump, this was the end result of yankin too hard on a 5200 ft track in -15*C weather, ripped her clean from the carbody. Enjoy.

Oh yeah, they told me to leave the car there and take everything north of it to hump, I had to take that car over to the RIP track later on and set it there for mechanical to fix.

No pics of the knuckle and all the hardware that went with it dangling from whatever it was coupled to??

Not to speak for Trainmaster but, as long as it isn't a shelf coupler, it should just fall to the ground after the break. I think I'm understanding that question?!

It's better than being on the mainline as it happened as it did to me years ago, and having to ride the flatcar (junior brakey) to back into Hamilton's Stuart Street Yard from Copetown East in an unexpected November downpour in 1969 before we had radio handsets available (but plenty of fusees). Only later did the dispatcher JRK realize that we should have set it off at Copetown siding,even though we had told him earlier that it was empty.

So... How did you guys get that coupler assembly into the gon?

5200ft and dang cold... I suppose the reporting mark IC on the car stood for "I Can't" that day?

Guys from the mechanical department used a large boom truck to hoist the entire coupler assembly into the gon for further repairs.

Ah, I follow you. However, I'd still like to see a pic of the hardware that was ripped off.

I would have done that but Hunter Harrison is more worried about getting his quota of cars humped more than anything else.

As would I. Looks like it did a great job of coming apart anyway!
