Engineer was in too much of a hurry to wait for the turn table to line up.

Maybe the engineer thought his “extra” flags gave him priority over the turntable. :laughing:

Well, he had a better day than this guy,



Well, and these guys…

OK, sorry, I’ll stop…

The photo of the North American locomotive burst out of the roundhouse is an example of a “night crawler.” There was a problem with the throttle linkage that allowed the throttle to open as the locomotive warmed-up. This caused roundhouse “break-outs” and unscheduled jaunts along the right of way sometimes, until the linkage was corrected.
