** Connecting the trainline would have been a useless gesture if the angle cock wasn't closed at the other end (between the two lead AC4400CWs and the rest of the train), which it likely would not have been. If the angle cock was open, any air pumped in to the train line would just escape out the open end of the hose.

** The whole running thing is impossible at such speeds anyway. He would get blown off the train if he tried it.

* Once 1206 is coupled to the rear of 777, why not try to hook up the air brakes to the train? Especially once the locomotive brakes are burnt out. It wouldn't be easy, but surely less risky than running along the roof of each car.

** Justified, most railroad inspectors do not have control tower or rail-hump training, they do exclusive field and on-the-job working directly with the grunts and the ordering offices.

*** Only because they were trying to slow the train down using that second set of engines. If they'd just matched speed with 777 instead of trying to slow it, there wouldn't have been any bouncing and someone could just walk across. Plus, the engines have walkways. The gap between the locomotives would have been less than it is between unpowered rail cars, as train crews do need to pass between locomotives from time to time, so there wouldn't have been any need to make a dangerous leap.

** The front engine kept, for lack of a better term, bouncing off of 777 - if he timed his jump wrong he'd be killed.
