22. This has long been a real problem for the railroads,
it sounds like it was just the engine and maybe a few cars doing some local switching if the same engineer came back ina few moments. This would be a lot quieter than a fully loaded freight blasting by on the mainline.

I drove taxi when I was in college--in a small town with quite a bit of railroad activity--and railroad crews take a LOT of cab rides. It seems that running people over is a tragic, but commonplace part of the job, the engineer who hasn't run somebody over is a rare man.
