I was watching something on Jackie O on A&E or History or something, and it
had a segment on RFK's last ride. There was a considerable amount of
footage from the cortage, but I didn't see anything of the equipment itself.
The film looked like newsreel footage, and there were considerable crowds
both on platforms and along the track. I remember thinking as I watched
this, one G-motor running east bound, and these people are toast!
