Americans sometimes get the impression that everything works smoothly in European railroading. That view can be traced to most of their travel being in good weather and to the density of service. In going through a batch of letters I wrote for my family I found this January 1970 account of a time when things were going wrong.

(RTO = Rail Transportation Office - the U.S. train station and freight yard.)
