A blog about living in Aberdeen, New Jersey.

I went to Hazlet yesterday to see Unstoppable, a movie based on a true story of a runaway train. The film tells a story based in Pennsylvania, while the actual incident (see CNN story A and CNN story B from May 2001) occurred in Ohio. The runaway train was designated AVR 777 in the movie but in real life was marked CSX 8888 and is now known among train buffs as Crazy Eights, according to PennLive and Wikipedia.
