As a teenager, spent time in Colton tower with Bob Wagner, one of the Towermen, during the '50s.  One day an eastbound SP freight train didn't get stopped short of the interlocking signal, dropping the signal on an approaching westbound UP passenger train crossing in front of him, creating a bit of excitement.

I spent time in the tower, etc, etc.   But just as a friendly reminder, there is a Forum "Nostalgia and History" for the "good old stuff"
