I was once riding the Texas Eagle and listening to the scanner. Apparently there was only one engineer in that trip. He told the dispatcher that he needed to stop the train so he could use the bathroom. This occurred between Joliet and Dwight.

I always wondered what happens if an engineer who is alone in the cab needs to use the restroom.
