Remarks & Notes 
A railway postal clerk snags a bag from midair on a cross country CB&Q passenger train in the '50s... In reality, this comes from the time machine known as the Illinois Railway Museum at the yearly Museum Showcase Weekend. This year (2019), the Museum utilized 1914 CB&Q RPO number 1923 with their Nebraska Zephyr trainset, a historically accurate consist. Museum volunteers spent the weekend picking up mailbags from the crane while dropping bags on the ground; despite a young crew, not a single bag was missed!
