I think N&W and Southern had a better idea running their power long hood forward once upon a time. That was better than hoping the so-called safety cab doesn't get crushed like this!

I believe 9939 may have run her lasr revenue mile.

Cliff, sadly, I would have to agree.

As bad as it looks, the safety cab held up remarkably well. The roof didn't collapse and the nose didn't get driven back into the cab. I don't know if there are seatbelts on a locomotive. Without a seatbelt you're in for a world of hurt in a crash no matter what vehicle you're in.

So sad that the crew has to deal with this because of some truck drivers negligence. Glad they are going to recover but it's just a shame, thoughts are with you my brothers.

Fifth accident in two years? I think it's time the town thought about rebuilding or eliminating the crossing.

There is a special place in Hell for the guy who invented the Lowboy trailer.
