Cockeye Curve. Drifting downgrade with the cylinder cocks open, WW&F #9 brings a short freight south through an S-curve that is referred to as "Cockeye Curve."
On November 15th of 1928, this location was the site of a wreck involving 6 boxcars that ended up down the embankment. Two-foot gauge derailments were not uncommon, and if you've ever been in the cab of one of these locomotives, it is pretty intuitive that there's serious peril in excessive speed. Although many derailments on the slim-gauge were indeed traced to crews trying to make up time, the incident here appears to have been more related to a structural failure in one of the boxcar trucks. By 1928, a lot of the rolling stock on the original WW&F was looking pretty well used-up.
