It was up ahead of us and the dispatcher called us and told us." The freight train slowed enough...that another CSX trainmaster was able to jump on board...and apply the brakes. The fugitive train safely creaked to a halt. SUPT. JOHN HARRIS, CSX POLICE "There was nobody on that engine. How'd it get going? We don't know. We're investigating that right now."
