Also, many times I have been asked about the operations of a railroad. I have tried in this book to relate some of these operations while telling what goes on in the cab and the sights that are seen through a locomotive windshield. I have also related some of the narrow escapes and dangerous situations I have found myself in as an Engineer for forty years. Sometimes it was humorous, sometimes scary, sometimes deadly.So all you guys and gals, who always thought you wanted to be a locomotive engineer let me tell you about what you missed. In some instances youll be glad you did.
