So, where did you get your degree in quantum physics?

As to the PSR problems with yarding trains in terminals, this was a problem with the Alameda Corridor long before the 20,000 foot monster trains, which have only made the problem an order of magnitude worse in the Harbor complex. When they keep letting too many PSR trains into the corridor, and they die on the law, it gets to where they can't get trains out of the corridor.

As to theft from trains, I remember the carload of liquor that was retouted (an inside job) to a team track, and by the time somebody realized this and the special agents found it, the liquor was long gone... I remember the cigarette distributor we used to switch on Alameda Street, and how we were continuously guarded by special agents until it was handed over to the security guards behind locked gates at the distributor...

Trailers on TOFC flats where an early victim of cargo theft. And one problem was they'd leave the doors open and "swinging wide", which resulted in a few accidents...

And yet, so many people just loved Tony Soprano...
