On February 5, 2005, Employee #1, of Allegheny Ludlum, was working as the conductor on a four-car train on the in-plant railroad. He was riding the lead car. The train's locomotive was being operated by an engineer using a remote control. As the train passed some stationary cars, the clearance between the moving cars on the train and the stationary cars diminished. The train continued along a fairly straight line, with the space decreasing until it was only 9 inches wide. Employee #1 was pinched between the cars and crushed. He was killed.
