Remarks & Notes 
If you really want it, and you work very, very hard, this can be your office. This is the view that the fireman of one of the greatest steam locomotives ever built sees while on the move. We are moving at restricted east on the Mall Siding in Scranton while positioning the locomotive so that you may run down to the head end of your train. As the fireman, you are looking for the Mall Siding switch to see if it is lined for you. It's around the bend to the left, out of the engineers's view because of the Berkshire's massive boiler. If you run a bad switch, there will be a nasty mess and you will not like what happens next. Still want to do this? BTW, if you think a cab ride in 765 is incredible, you are right.
