Remarks & Notes 
On July 3rd, 1972, Clinchfield RR. GP7 906 was involved in a crash in the yard in Elkhorn City, KY. when a cut of hoppers got loose in the yard and crashed into the locomotive servicing area on the north end. 906 received a very badly bent frame, as evident from the severe crown it is showing. The unit was eventually scrapped in 1973, and the carbody was sold to the Illinois Central Gulf, likely to be used at their Paducah facilities, which were well known for their rebuilding skills. 35mm slide from my collection, photo by Dan Dover.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
