Remarks & Notes 
Not your typical "coupler pan" shot. The trailing centerbeam flatcar dropped it's drawbar about a mile or so back. At about 3 mph they made it about half mile before the strap that was holding the car to the train, broke. A chain was found and rigged up to drag the car into the Tacoma Yard for setout.

Pace and pan shots of trains from on the ground or in the air. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
