A K4 is called to assist a T1*
3:16 a.m., 29 minutes late out of Chicago, the GOLDEN
TRIANGLE limps into Fort Wayne. The cause -- reduced steam pressure
due to bad coal. K4 5471 couples to the T1 and both engines take
No. 62 east. Once the train was rolling, T1 5507 shuts off, leaving
the K4 to handle the train. As the story unfolds, John Crosby
writes of bad coal, a late train, bad timing at a track pan and
subsequent arrival at Crestline 45 minutes off the advertised.
