True story. Somewhere along the Maine Central's Mountain Sub, I spotted two young boys who had managed to get their snowmobile stuck in the flangeways near a crossing. Imagine the abject terror on their faces when I told them the train from St. Johnsbury was moments away. Naturally I helped them pull it free in time. Could the train have stopped in time? Who knows!
