    Hello All -

    Any details on these derailments? I know that this wasn't from one accident, but a siding in Springfield Yard where locomotives in need of repair are staged.

    Thanks and Enjoy,

Discovered these while digging through some of my father's old photos. I remember him taking these photos.

    Ouch. Some of those looked ominous. Hope the crews survived.

    Thanks for posting.

    Those are some REALLY interesting photos! Certainly not something you see every day.

    It amazes me what the shops are are to repair and send back out into service. Would be interesting to know what happened to this group and when. There's an archive photo of GP35 703 wearing O&W with nose strips dated Feb 1973. Based on weathering, I would guess the paint is 6-12 months old. http://frisco.org/mainline/wp-conte...bruary-3-1972-Conniff-Railroad-Collection.jpg

    What surprises me is the fact that 948 retained its L shaped window and 811 retained its 1 piece middle window after repairs.
