CAR DIES ON RAILS; BOY SAFE, CITY YOUTH CAUGHT IN REAL NIGHTMARE AS TRAIN STRIKES If you've ever had a nightmare of being stalled on railroad tracks in front of a onrushing train, you can sympathize with 19-year-old James Calvin Thomas of 127 SW 28. It happened to him Sunday night -- only it wasn't a dream. Young Thomas escaped injury when a northbound Santa Fe Train smashed his family's car, a new 1955 model, on the grade crossing at SE 29 and Shields. "It was just like a nightmare to sit here trying to start the car and watch that big engine getting closer," he said. CAR ENGINE STALLS, James, a Moore high school graduate who moved to Oklahoma City with his family last year, was going west on SE 29 when the accident occurred. "Just as my front wheels hit the tracks," the youth recalled, "the warning light started to blink. I jumped on the brakes and the engine died with the car right across the tracks." "The train was about a block away and I kept trying to start the car until it got pretty close. Then I jumped out and started waving my arms."
