More Train Talk

Here’s a brief observation to the comments made by Roy Sahlstrom (ME ’45) in the winter 2016 issue of IIT Magazine regarding the mechanical drafting classes in Main Building: The class was on the top floor, and in addition to the coal smoke, the building shook whenever a train rushed by. We learned to lift our pencils as soon as we heard a train approaching.
