    Derailment on the Chesapeake and Albermarle

    On March 26, 2010 At approximately 4AM, the Chesapeake and Albermarle rock job was northbound with approximately 40 empties. When it approached the open bascule draw span over the Intercoastal Waterway, the train was not able to stop. Instead, the lead engine collided with the counterweight and...

    CTRW derailment Nov 2009

    In an attempt to add a photo at least once a week, I thought I'd start with one from last year. Carlton Trail was just entering the Prince Albert yard with a load of grain, when the last three cars jumped the rails and carved a nice groove in the pavement. Several hundred feet of track had to be...

  11. Simpson on the ground

    Simpson on the ground

    Simpson 900 on the ground along Railroad Ave in Shelton, July, 2007. Note the string of boxcars blocking it from the view of Railroad Ave. Sorry for the low quiality, all I had was a cellphone at the time.

  13. In No Hurry...

    In No Hurry...

    Details of a derailed boxcar along the BNSF Galveston subdivision in Chriesman, TX from October 2003. The wreckage had been pushed to the side of the ROW and awaits a scrap crew.
  14. Whoops!

    Whoops!

    Southbound Tacoma to Pasco derailed about 7 cars, but only on one side. I'm amazed how the rail stood up to the tremendous pressure applied by the flange on the other rail. This happened at approximately 3:15pm on March 30th, 2008. The train stopped just under the Narrows Bridge.
  15. Crushed Gevo

    Crushed Gevo

    BNSF 5942 was the lead unit on a southbound C-JRMSLP230A (Jacobs Ranch Mine, WY -- Smithers Lake Power(Houston)) coal train that entered an open switch in Cactus, TX and hit a cut of cars on a spur track. Both crew members survived the wreck with only minor injuries.
  16. CTRW Oops...

    CTRW Oops...

    Driving through rural SK, looking for CTRW in semi-abandoned hamlets, I finally found some RR equipment in the middle of now-where, next to a deserted HWY. Judging by the bulldozer tracks, CTRW decided to clean this one up. His trucks are just outside of the frame.
