    Thought I'd post this here:

    Scanner call on 9-16-08 -- NS tracks - just North of Chester PA

    5:01 -- Train going over grade crossing - Instead of 2 long 1 short 1 long.. all he got was the one long... when the engineer hit the second - the horn Stuck OPEN!!! :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    5:02 - He's stopped within a half mile from my house, i'm thinking of calling 911

    5:02:30 - Scanner: first 911 call - Locomotive, NS - horn is continously sounding

    5:05 --- STILL BLOWING!!!!

    5:07 -- First Officer arrives on scene (Calls in "Away from vehicle")

    5:10 -- HORN STOPS Blowing........

    5:11 - Scanner: Ok - - we got it - my hammer was bigger than the Engineer's hammer - It was stuck open - .... not anymore.....

    Now THAT's Funny!!!!! :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    The engine was pointing toward a hospital too. I bet they LOVED that!!!! :cry::cry:

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    At the Smiths Falls Choclate & Railway (great combo! :thumb: ) festival two years ago, they had two CPR units (don't know which, I'm a steam guy ;)) sitting on the wye at the end of the yard. You could climb into the cab, and they allowed little kids (and not so little :)) to blow the horn... The wye is right across the street from a bunch of houses, and Canadian regulations I believe call for 110 dB or more...

    This year, no horn blowing allowed... :eek:
