Don related the following story on Todd Clark's trainorders.com:

A little further up the line at Glen Carbon, IL 759 was stopped by the tower operator. We asked him why he stopped them since there wasn't a conflicting move or anything and he said "I know, I just wanted to get a good look at him". It made a nice show starting the train there.
