On January 15th a runaway train (with failed brakes) called the Federal Express from Boston pulled by GG-1 No. 4876 crashed through the platform area and into the baggage room (today’s food court). Miraculously no one was killed. As this was 5 days before the Eisenhower Inaugural, the hole in the floor was boarded over. After the inauguration, the GG-1 was cut into 3 pieces and sent back to Altoona where it was reassembled and put back in service.
