Imagine standing there and watching and the ramps cause the train to jump the track but the hose is perfectly fine. I know it wouldn't work but if those things did work, that's what would happen.

Page 40 has some info on the Philly hose jumpers, also has a pic of a truck used to work on the overhead that they would sometimes use to run the hoses over the trolleys.
