|Some pix. (for Michael !) of the well documented GG-1 train-wreck...
...which is said to have inspired the end of the Hollywood movie ' Silver Streak '.
The engineer stayed in the cab blowing the horn, all the way to the end...
...& remarkably, got out of the GG-1 cab and walked away without incident.
No one was killed in the wreck; mainly due to the fact his horn blowing alerted people in the station terminus.
The train plowed through the end-stops & on to the main concourse...
...then the floor collapsed & the loco fell into the basement freight area below !
