|Vern-your idea about the string of mules reminds me of a story a friend I had who worked on the Arizona Eastern told me: The engineers rounded a corner to find a rather large cow stuck midway accross a trestle: It seems that the heifer tried to cross the trestle, but her legs fell between the ties, rendering her unable to move. The Arizona Eastern which runs from Bowie AZ to Globe, only manages about 10-15mph. Unfortunately for the cow the engineer was unable to stop the train, leaving quite a mess on both trestle and loco...
