Good story but, kind of a dull ending.. would have been better if the REA car got highballed and an ensuing circle of blame on who's fault it was..

Still, it's packed full of useful information for someone modelling the NS (such as Yours Truly).

Harry likes to talk about riding in the Baldwins a lot.  He described them as like riding in a Cadillac.

And the Southern Pacific crews thought that Baldwins rode rough, they called the SD9's Cadillacs

Interesting.  Maybe it was NS was all Baldwin (except three GE 70 tonners) and that meant the shop crews were better at keeping them running smoothly?  I feel like SP had better track than NS.
