Certainly doesn't seem to much activity going on.

Wonder how much damage that does to engine and tender: would expect brake rigging and drawbar. If a larger locomotive with mechanical stoker, would expect that to need repairs as well.

And so ended L&N's "Your wife at the throttle day", 1947. Interesting photo, Ron. And it looks like the person taking it went the extra mile to do so even though it is basically a "wreck shot".

Another perfectly good example of why you should never leave your engine running unattended.

I understand that the most common reason for this sort of incident, at least here in the UK, was due to locomotives not having their parking brake pinned down properly, the regulator having been moved (during cleaning or maintenance) and then the fire lit without checking the afore mentioned - result, one locomotive tacking themselves for a trip...

I love how there is photographic evidence of this type of accident happening in pretty much EVERY SINGLE era of Railroading lol. Some things never change.

So I shouldn’t be too embarrassed when it happens on my model railroad.😊
