Re: Some Railfans Have All the Luck!

I wonder if David Harrison (ChicagoPCCLCars) was on this trip??

Reminds me of the APTA International Rail Rodeo in Miami, FL (Miami-Dade Transit) in 2004, when during the operating competition, (INCIDENTALLY!!) Chicago CTA was running during their turn in the competition, which was in MDT Palmetto Yard, adjacent to (and by rail physically connected to FEC's Hialeah Yard), and as they approached a portion of the course, the rail shifted beneath the train, and the train derailed. NYCT's team (which included yours truly, as this was my last few months at the TA) had got done early. However MNR, and I believe St. Louis, and SEPTA were marooned out there until at least 6 or 7 PM (NYCT was done by about 12 pm). Yeah, it was in itself something to talk about!!! No operator was found at fault, as the problem was caused by a track defect.
