Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

It must be appreciated that running a train with two locos was a feat of great skill for the train crews. It involved precise synchronization to avoid pulling apart.

Not like now, when multiple smaller locos is routine in long haul freight service, all of them in sync driven by the engineer up front. The only exception to this is a very long train on tricky terrain might have another locomotive and crew at the back end. This is a situation where precisely in sync wont work due to the slack in the train, and again requires great skill.
