On June 13, 1949, a Frisco freight train hit a washout on the Sherman-Carrollton-Irving mainline derailing 18 of the 4o cars in the consist. I have searched for several years seeking information on the washout as it occured behind my grandparent's small farm which was located between the Frisco and old US 77 (now I-35E) in Farmers Branch. I finally found a photo of the wreck and story in the San Bernardino Sun newspaper dated June 15, 1949, by searching Google. I enlarged the photo and discovered that several of the cars involved in the derailment belonged to Pacific Fruit Express. If you type in the data for this edition of the paper you should bring up the front page where the photograph is shown which accompanies the heading of the artical "11 die in Texas storm". The entire North Texas area was hit by severe flooding. I also found color (!) footage on YouTube of Ft. Worth under water taken by the Ft. Worth Police Deparment. B&W photos of T&P's Lancaster Yard in Ft. Worth were found on another site which includes the large Montomery Ward store as well as other pix of the area. If any member should locate additional material that covers the great 1949 North Texas flood relating to the Frisco please share with the rest of us. Thank You, Happy Hunting, Enjoy!
