Thanks for these videos, Chris. Ouch!
Glad that wasn't MY Pacific... ;>)
Nice station stop. Very effective braking.
Heh - that's what happens when one holds one's camera too close to the tracks and, unwittingly, one's elbow is actually *across* the tracks. The proper denouement would have been a photo of the resulting wreckage (yup, the loco ended up on its side). But, thankfully, no actual damage.Won't do THAT again!
