Remarks & Notes 
This is the result of an out of control coal train two miles into a descent on a 3 percent grade as it hits a 12 degree reverse curve (St. Charles line of the Appalachia District). Notice the local folk just walking on top of the wrecked "Big Red" hoppers. Today, NS would have onlookers standing a half mile away, since coal is a "hazardous material." :)
