Let's face it, we occasionally mess up while running our model trains. Here's a place to post your embarrassing moments in model railroading.
My most recent embarrassing moment that happened last night while preparing to video for Western Roads Wednesday. I forgot to set a switch to through and started my Union Pacific/Western Pacific SD70Ace freight in motion. While I was messing with the camera the UP/WP freight slammed into a Santa Fe freight parked in the station! Fortunately no damage that I could see while cleaning up the wreck. Unfortunately, one of the track side mechanics next to the shed didn't fair well in the wreck!
You can see the UP/WP freight cowering in the bay window, although it wasn't the engineers fault. The switch being a Fastrack remote we can only blame the dispatcher, who will now be flipping burgers at the local Micky D's! Go ahead, laugh!
