A few years ago while traveling on the Crescent to Newark, the stopover in Washington was a bit long. The traffic on my scanner had several pleas for the location of a particular engine. After about 45min, someone transmitted that there was an engine behind some building and asked it that was the engine being sought. A few minutes later, an engine comes rolling up to connect and continue the journey northward. Engines and freight cars both appear easy to lose. With no radios back in the stmfc era, the wait probably would have been longer.
