Don’t Drop A Locomotive



According to the YouTube caption:

“A brand new American Engineered EMD GT46C-ACe was dropped while being unloaded from the cargo-ship at dock.”

Would be kind of an awkward accident to report.

“Uh, you know the brand new railroad engine you ordered?”

“Yes, is it finally here?”

“Sort of. We dropped it from the crane and it fell to the dock.”

From how high?”

“Not high. Maybe ten feet. OK, maybe thirty feet. I think we can glue it back together.”
