“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.
 When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
 I wrote ‘happy’.
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
 -- John Lennon

He's lucky the coupler didn't hit his car.

draskouasshat:  I would imagine that he asked the crew about it while driving them back.  I also can't imagine the railroad wanting the broken knuckle, so it became "discarded waste", free for the taking.

Took a train down the old BNSF Harbor Sub once. Three times had break in twos between the same well car & autorack car. The drawbar on the autorack was real loosy goosy & the old Harbor looking like a modular layout at the joints, wasn't anything we could do. They finally sent a Watson yard job w/ a huge chain to rap around both couplers & take it to Watson.
