Remarks & Notes 
It's Christmas day way back when and we're eastbound on the Thunderhawk train 262 when at Astico a truck side lets go and by the wheels cutting through the brake pipe we go into emergency. Luckily we do not derail but we cannot move the car either way....it has to be re-trucked right here on the mainline. Needless to say we're not going anywhere all traffic will run around us and we will die for time right here. Since its Christmas the Trainmaster decides to deadhead us back to Portage our away from home terminal where we'll come out in turn two days later....try telling that to your wife when you told her Christmas Eve not to worry you'll be home for Christmas and not be home for three more days......talk about in the proverbial "DOG HOUSE."
