DYING DOING WHAT YOU DO BEST

 

ON THE ROAD & AT THE THROTTLE

 

"Hey Buddy," We're right on the money."

 

These words were the last uttered by Engineer Joe Conn on the Austin-Houston run September 19, 1972,

A little before 2 o'clock as No. 46 was steaming up grade, preliminary to the roll down the hill to Burton Station. No. 46 topped the grade,

but to the surprise of fireman Cox the train began to increase speed as it felt the influence of the incline,

and when he called to his chief, asking him why he had not "shut her off" for the coast down hill, received no reply.

An inert, unresponsive figure was crouched in the right hand seat, head lying upon a window sill, yet with fingers still grasping the throttle

as they had for so many active years in the service of the H. & T. C. Railroad.

 

Joe Conn had made his last run, and had passed to his reward while on duty, just as he may possibly had hoped, on time and ready.

 

Fireman Cox speedily brought the train to its regular stop and notified the conductor, and together they

tenderly removed the body of the dead engineer and placed it within the sleeper car for a silent journey to headquarters and home.

B. L. Weatherford, another engineer, was a passenger on No. 46 and he brought the train to Houston, just as Joe Conn would have done -

 

Right on the money, - on time.
